FORAGE TIMELY TIPS FOR APRIL

As pasture growth begins, rotate through pastures quickly to keep up with the fast growth of spring.

Creep-graze calves and lambs, allowing them access to highest-quality pasture.

Finish re-seeding winter feeding sites where soil disturbance and sod damage occurred.

As pasture growth exceeds the needs of the livestock, remove some fields from the rotation and allow growth to accumulate for hay or haylage.

Determine need for warm season forages.

Flash graze pastures newly seeded with clovers to manage competition.
