Forage Timely Tips for April

  • Graze cover crops using temporary fencing.

  • 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.

  • Flash graze pastures newly seeded with clovers to manage competition.
