Timely Tips for Pastures
- Graze cover crops using temporary fencing.
- As pasture growth begins, rotate through pastures quickly to keep up with the fast growth of spring.
- As pasture growth exceeds the needs of the livestock, remove some fields from the rotation and allow growth to accumulate for hay.
- Determine need for supplemental warm season forages.
- Flash graze pastures newly seeded with clovers to manage competition.
