Seneca alfalfa from T.A. Seeds was recognized among the top finishers in the Forage Super Bowl in October. Widely recognized as the top forage competition in the United States, the Forage Super Bowl is held annually at the World Dairy Expo in Madison, WI.
Grown and entered in the contest by Co-Vista Holsteins of Arcade, NY, Seneca alfalfa placed second overall and first among alfalfa varieties in the haylage category with a final score of 88.09, 3470 milk per ton and a Relative Forage Quality score of 226. Co-Vista Holsteins was awarded a cash prize for their finish and special recognition at the event.
“We’re pleased to congratulate Co-Vista Holsteins on their impressive finish in the Forage Super Bowl and thank them for entering Seneca alfalfa in the contest”, stated Cory Chelko, T.A. Seeds product coordinator.
Seneca is a fall dormancy 4 alfalfa with high yield and quality potential and high resistance to the seven major alfalfa diseases. An ideal alfalfa for demanding dairy operations, it exhibits fast recovery and excellent persistence.

Finalists in each category are judged by University of Wisconsin personnel based on lab analysis and visual judging criteria.
