FORAGE TIMELY TIPS FOR JANUARY

Feed best hay to animals with highest nutritional needs.

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

Prepare for pasture renovation by purchasing seeds, inoculant, etc. and getting equipment ready.

Use variety trial results to select seed for spring renovation.

Consider "bale grazing" - set out hay when the ground is dry or frozen. Using temporary fencing to allocate bales as needed.

Supplement poor quality hay as indicated for forage testing.

Feed hay in areas where mud is less of a problem.

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