FORAGE TIMELY TIPS FOR MAY

Start hay harvests for quality forage. Consider making baleage to facilitate timely cutting.

Seed warm season grasses for supplemental forage once soil temperature is at 60 F.

Clip, graze, or make hay to prevent seedhead formation.

Rotate pastures as based in height rather than time.

Consider temporary electric fencing to subdivide larger pastures and exclude areas for mechanical harvesting.

Scout pastures for summer annual weeds and control when small.
