FORAGE TIMELY TIPS FOR JANUARY

Continue grazing stockpiled tall fescue if available.

Assess grass stands. If thin, consider adding legumes.

Begin frost seeding with 6-8 lb/A red and 1-2 lb/A ladino white clover on closely grazed pastures.

On pastures with lower fertility, consider also adding 10-15 lb/A annual lespedeza.

Consider applying 40 lb/A nitrogen in mid- to late-February on some pastures to promote early growth.

Sign up for shared use drills for spring renovation.

Service and calibrate no-till drills.

Apply lime and fertilizer according to soil test if not done in fall.
