FORAGE TIMELY TIPS FOR AUGUST

Continue grazing available summer annuals (millets, sorghum/Sudangrass, crabgrass, etc.).

Apply 40-60 lb N/A to stimulate summer annual regrowth.

Identify fescue pastures for stockpiling. Choose pastures that are well drained, have a strong sod, and have not been overgrazed.

Soil test pastures to determine fertility needs.

Using UK variety trial results, select varieties to plant in the fall and order seed.

Use a designated sacrifice lot to feed livestock hay and supplements as you wait for drought stressed pastures to reset and no forage is available for grazing.
