Forage Symposium to be Virtual in 2021, WCO Scrapping Sessions
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/16/2020

The continuing threat of the coronavirus pandemic has led another group of Wisconsin farm organizations to drop plans for an in-person convention next year. Leaders of the Midwest Forage Association, Professional Nutrient Applicators Association of Wisconsin and Wisconsin Custom Operators announced that its 2021 Forage Symposium, which is typically held in Wisconsin Dells in mid-February, will be offered in a virtual format.

"After thoughtful consideration and discussion, the WCO, MFA and PNAAW boards made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person symposium," said WCO President Bryce O'Leary. Because we can't duplicate the value of being together in-person with an online event, the WCO board is not planning virtual content for the Forage Symposium. However, MFA is going forward with a modified virtual conference, and we encourage you to attend."

O'Leary adds that the WCO annual business meeting, which is traditionally held in conjunction with the Forage Symposium, will be held using ZOOM on January 27 from 9 -10 a.m.

Meanwhile, the WCO is also evaluating its options for its biannual Safety Certification program for 2021.
