Forage producers across North America are invited to enter the World Forage Analysis Superbowl. The 2022 contest is set to award over $26,000 in cash prizes.

The deadline to submit corn silage samples is July 8, while all other entries must be submitted by August 25. The $35 entry fee provides entry into the contest along with a detailed sample analysis that is sent to entrants after judging is complete.

The World Forage Analysis Superbowl is comprised of eight divisions that evaluate samples through lab and visual analyses. The winner of each division earns a cash award of $1,500, with additional cash prizes presented to second through fifth place.


The divisions are: dairy hay, commercial hay, grass hay, alfalfa haylage, mixed/grass haylage, baleage, standard corn silage, and corn silage.

A Grand Champion Forage Producer will also be named and will receive $2500. The Grand Champion First-Time Entrant will be presented a $2,000 cash award. Special awards also presented are the $1,000 Quality Counts Award for Hay/Haylage and the $1,000 Quality Counts Award for Corn Silage.

All award winners will be recognized at a luncheon on October 5, 2022, at World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wis.
