Forage Timely Tips: 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 grazing below the minimum desired residual height.
  • Crabgrass, a warm-season annual grass, can provide high quality summer grazing. Remember crabgrass needs some annual soil disturbance to keep coming back.
