Forage Timely Tips: May

  • Start hay harvests for quality forage. Consider making baleage to facilitate timely cutting.
  • Seed warm season grasses for supplemental forage once soil temperature is at 60 F.
  • Clip, graze, or make hay to prevent seedheads.
  • Rotate pastures based on height rather than time. 
  • Consider temporary electric fencing to subdivide larger pastures and save areas for hay.   
  • Scout pastures for summer annual weeds and control when the weeds are small.
