FORAGE TIMELY TIPS: January

Continue strip-grazing of stockpiled tall fescue for maximum utilization.

Feed best hay to animals with highest nutritional needs.

Supplement poor quality hay as indicated by forage testing results.

Remove animals from very wet pastures to limit pugging and soil compaction.

Plan for pasture renovation: purchase improved varieties, inoculant, etc.

Feed hay in poor pastures to increase soil fertility and enhance organic matter.

Consider "bale grazing." Use temporary fencing to allocate bales as needed.
