FORAGE TIMELY TIPS FOR AUGUST

Slow grazing rotation for cool-season pastures to allow more rest time. Do NOT graze close than 4-5 inches.

If cool-season pastures are not growing, feed hay in a sacrifice area to avoid damaging these pastures.

Graze summer annuals and perennials.

Plant winter annuals after first good rain in August if Fall grazing is desired.

Identify pastures that will be stockpiled for winter grazing. Graze or clip these pastures and apply 60-80 lb N/A in mid to late August.

Rest pastures that are being stockpiled.
