Yield and Nutritive Value of Cool-Season Annual Forages and Mixtures Seeded into Pearl Millet Stubble
Cool-season annual forages can provide grazing for beef cattle during fall and early winter. Th e objective of this study was to evaluate yield and nutritive value of nine forage combinations seeded in early August into ...
Forage Brassicas Stockpiled for Fall Grazing: Yield and Nutritive Value
Forage brassicas can potentially be used to extend the grazing season into the fall for beef cattle operations, thereby reducing input costs. Nine cultivars of forage brassicas were seeded on two planting dates, and their ...
