FORAGE TIMELY TIPS FOR MAY

Continue hay harvests. Minimize storage losses by storing hay under cover.

Clip pastures for weeds and seedheads as needed.

Slow rotation allowing for a longer recovery period.

Use portable fencing to decrease paddock size and increase paddock number.

Do NOT graze below the minimum desired residual height.

Crabgrass, a warm-season annual grass, can provide high quality summer grazing. Remember crabgrass needs some annual soil disturbance to keep coming back.
