Nutritive Value of Native Warm-Season Grass Mixtures
Biomass production systems using native warm-season grasses can allow for an early-season harvest (for forage) followed by a dormant harvest (for biomass). This study was conducted to investigate the impact of harvest timing and grass species on the chemical composition of harvested forage and biomass.
Switchgrass Yield and Stand Dynamics from Legume Intercropping
Intercropping legumes may reduce inputs and enhance sustainability of forage and feedstock production, especially on marginal soils. This approach is largely untested for switchgrass production, yet producer acceptance should be high given the traditional use of legumes in forage/agricultural systems.
Veterinary Feed Directives
What beef cattle producers need to know about the upcoming federal regulatory changes for medicated feeds. Medicated feeds are valuable tools that can be utilized by beef cattle producers for various health or production reasons.
Forage and Soil Testing
The importance of regularly testing your forages and soil is not stressed enough. Smart economical use of feedstocks and ferilizers will make a difference in your over-all management program. A little effort now can pay big dividends later on.
