FORAGE TIMELY TIPS FOR MARCH

Graze winter annuals that were inter-seeded into thin pastures last fall.

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.

Determine need for supplemental warm season forages such as pearl millet or sudangrass.
