Producing and feeding high quality forages is vital to improved animal performance, whether the goal is more pounds of milk, a higher rate of gain, or improved conception.
Forage quality is defined as the extent to which a forage, whether pasture, hay or silage, has the ability to produce the desired animal response.
While many factors affect forage quality, the stage of maturity at harvest or grazing is the single most important consideration. It also is the one where producers can make the most progress.
