For some of you, stockpiled grass and hay aren’t the only options for winter grazing. If you graze in corn country, corn stalk grazing is a good option to extend your grazing season. With that in mind, this week’s collection includes three articles on the ins and outs of corn stalk grazing, another on how to work with neighbors to graze their cover crops or corn stalks, and one on soy bean crop residue.
The first is from a BEEFWatch newsletter and gets into a good amount of detail on the value of corn stalks as feed. Victor Shelton adds to it with his own experience on what cattle eat, how to figure out how much feed you need, and how much feed you have.
