The Kansas Forage and Grassland Council (KSFGC) was first organized in 1988 to strengthen the forage base for the livestock industry through more efficient production and utilization. As the industry has changed, so too has KSFGC; today it’s mission is, “To serve as an umbrella organization providing education and programs to strengthen the forage industry in Kansas.”
