|dc.description.abstract||Dairy farming is well adapted to Alaska's environment. Continued expansion of dairying supplements other primary economic growth and development. High quality grass hay and grass and oat-pea silage can be efficiently grown in Alaska's Matanuska and Tanana Valleys and in other favorable sites. These roughages, supplemented by locally grown grain, can supply most nutrients needed by Alaska's dairy industry. Much skill is needed to grow good roughage. This report summarizes the results of forage research conducted in Alaska since 1948, and interprets them in terms of farm practices.||en_US|
