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.

Small grain forage options for this fall

Small grain forages can be a profitable option for producers. They can be planted in the fall and either terminated or grazed out in the early spring, allowing time to plant a summer row crop if soil moisture is adequate.

2021 wheat variety fall forage yield comparison

Fall forage yield is an important aspect of dual-purpose wheat production. While weather and management practices are two main factors affecting fall forage yield, there are differences among varieties with respect to fall forage potential.

Planting spring oats and turnips in the fall for forage

Enhanced forage allowance in late fall and early winter improves the forage budget in forage-based livestock systems. Spring oats and turnips can be an alternative, especially when farmers want to extend the grazing period.

Testing methods for nitrates in forages

In last week's eUpdate, nitrate and prussic acid poisoning was discussed when feeding cattle certain types of forages. In this follow-up article, we share information on the different tests available and how to collect a representative sample.

Wheat variety fall forage yield comparison for 2021-2022

Fall forage yield is an important aspect of dual-purpose wheat production. While weather and management play a large role in determining fall forage production, there are also differences among wheat varieties in forage production potential.

Filling the forage gaps after a challenging summer

In forage-based systems, the forage budget is the key component of livestock production. This hot, dry summer has resulted in farmers needing to adjust their forage plans for their operation. Learn the best options for minimizing any forage gaps heading into the fall and winter.
