The 2013 Alabama Forage Conference is sponsored by the Alabama Forage and Grassland Coalition, which was organized to promote improved forage and grazing practices. Coalition organizations are The Alabama Cattleman's Association, Alabama Farmers Federation, The Alabama Poultry and Egg Association, and the Alabama Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts. Programs are implemented by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, USDA - Natural Resources Conservation Service, and Auburn University.
This campaign aims to increase individual participation and quantities recycled in existing programs while finding new opportunities for communities that haven't previously existed. This logo will be a unifying symbol across Alabama where a very fragmented network of recycling opportunities exist. For more information click HERE
