FORAGE TIMELY TIPS FOR JUNE

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 3-4 inches.

When present, johnsongrass can provide high quality summer forage when managed.

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

Begin grazing native warm-season grasses. Start at 18-20" and stop at 8-10 inches.
