The Kansas State University Agronomy Forage Bowl Team took first place honors in the National Forage Bowl Competition held in Baton Rouge, Louisiana Jan. 10 - 13. The National Forage Bowl Competition is held in conjunction with the American Forage and Grassland Council Annual Meeting.
This is the second year in a row the K-State team has won the national competition.
The format of the National Forage Bowl Competition is similar to the popular game show Jeopardy. A moderator asks the undergraduate student teams a series of questions about forage production, management and utilization. Student teams compete to be the first to answer each question correctly. The questions and answers are chosen by a panel of forage experts. Topics include forage and grassland history, plant physiology, forage quality, grazing management, poisons and toxicity, hay/silage, and identification of forages and weeds.
K-State Agronomy Forage Bowl Team members are: Jessica Bramhall, junior, Seneca; Cole Renner, sophomore, Norton; Cami Roth, junior, Sterling; Alexandria Mustain, junior, Leavenworth; and Derek Balzer, junior, Belle Plaine. All students are majoring in agronomy except Cami Roth, who is majoring in animal sciences and industry.
The K-State Forage Bowl Team was coached by Doohong Min, assistant professor of agronomy.
