Consider stockpiling some fescue fields in August

-A A +A

Column by David Harrison, Extension Service

By David Harrison

August is an important month for beef producers to plan their fall and winter grazing program. Using crop residues and small grain and ryegrass cover crops can provide some late fall-early winter, as well as late- winter and early- spring gazing. However, the best option is to stockpile fescue during late summer and fall for use in late fall and winter.

Select the fields to be stockpiled and graze or mow soon. Add nitrogen by mid-August. Let stockpiled fields grow as long as possible in fall while other pastures are being grazed.
