FORAGE TIMELY TIPS FOR DECEMBER

Begin utilizing stockpiled pastures. Graze pastures with orchardgrass and clovers first. Save tall fescue pastures for late winter grazing.

Using polywire, strip graze stockpiled pastures to improve Utilization. Start at the water source and allocate enough forage for 2-3 days. Back fencing is not necessary.

Make plans to frost seed red and white clover onto closely grazed tall fescue pastures in February.

Some hay can be fed as stockpiled grass is grazed to stretch grasses.

Begin hay feeding as stockpiled forage is used up.

Supplement hay as needed.

Minimizing waste by utilizing ring feeders.
