2015 NIRSC Equations Release and Sign-up Schedule 

We announced in the January newsletter that NIRSC has implemented a staggered equation release schedule with the first release for the year to be hays and haylages in January.  We experienced the need for chemistry re-runs and expect the 2015 hays and haylages to be released in March.  To read more about the sign up schedule please go to: Equation Release & Sign-up Schedule

Sign up for equations can be done online with a simple form.  The form will be available all year for new sign ups and will get reported back to the NIRSC business office and invoicing will follow.  Payment plans will be available so that each member can budget for equation fees over the year.  Go to this link to sign up online: Online 2015 NIRSC Equations Sign-up
