Crop residues: Nutritive value and options for grazing

Significant amounts of residue may be left in fields after the growing season. One option is to graze these fields. Learn about the nutritive value of crop residues and other considerations for grazing corn and sorghum residue.

Cover crops grown post-wheat for forage under dryland conditions in the High Plains

Post-wheat planted cover crops may offer a longer and more flexible grazing period than spring-planted cover crops within wheat-based dryland cropping systems. Read more in a new publication from researchers at K-State and Colorado State University.

Optimal time to remove cattle from wheat pastures: First hollow stem

When using winter wheat as both a forage and a grain, it's important to terminate grazing at the optimal time. Avoid reductions in yield by removing cattle from wheat fields at the first hollow stem stage of development.

Test to prevent nitrate and prussic acid poisoning

Many Kansas cattle operations rely on some type of harvested feed to use in the winter months. Forages in the sorghum family are prone to two different problems for feeding cattle, nitrate poisoning and prussic acid poisoning. Learn about how to test for these and key characteristics of each toxin.

Crop residues: Nutritive value and options for grazing

Crop residue yield and nutrient content are dependent on grain yield, fertility, harvest date, and conditions at harvest. While not all acres are suitable for grazing, crop residue in Kansas represents a sizable resource. Learn about what needs to be considered when grazing residue.
