Shortages make forage a good cash crop

With fewer acres seeded to forage in the last couple of years, there is good money to be made here. But make sure you get paid in cash


In the last two years, a lot of forage acres were plowed down to grow corn and soys. This occurred both in Canada and the United States, where drought in some parts further reduced forage supply. As well, last year fewer acres were seeded to forage than was normal, with the result that we are heading for a forage shortage.
