Five video presentations are now available to address seed selection and production of annual forages that might be used to replace hay and pasture lost to the flood. Topics include successful forage production, nutrient value of the feed, and related government program.
When plants freeze, changes occur in their metabolism and composition that can poison grazing livestock if not properly managed. Delayed grazing is often the best solution, but how long should grazing be delayed?
If you were hit hard by hail and need to cover your fields, forage cover crops can provide an opportunity for haying or grazing as well as a protective plant layer. Plant selection is a key factor in successfully managing production.
