The National Forage Bowl Competition is an undergraduate team competition. The format is similar to the popular game show Jeopardy; categories cover all aspects of forage production and management. This is an excellent opportunity to get students from across the United States involved with a forage focused organization, to network with fellow students, to meet with forage leaders, and to learn about career opportunities in the forage industry.
"Since I went to a small school, there were few competitive opportunities for agriculture students outside of research. Forage Bowl provided a wonderful opportunity to compete on a national stage." ~ Lisa Baxter, Forage Bowl Contestant
