Yields have been good for baled forage in northeast Ohio. However, all costs should be considered before putting a price on extra hay.

Livestock producers have many annual forage options to supplement perennial forage production throughout the year to best serve their nutrient needs. 

It's time to take inventory of remaining hay supplies to make sure there is enough until pastures green up regardless of what weather conditions occur.

Now is a good time to consider management strategies for the remainder of the year that will ensure healthy and productive forage crops in 2022.

A severe fall armyworm outbreak developed across Ohio and neighboring states. FInd out what to do if your hayfields have been affected.

The fall rest period is important for pastures and forage fields, giving plants time to store enough energy for winter survival and stand longevity.

Although bale grazing on pasture can lead to some wasted feed, it has a great potential to improve the forage production in the area it's implemented.

Oats are a good crop to consider as an alternative forage because of its flexibility as a feed, yield potential and low-cost establishment.

The goal is to harvest at the boot stage for grasses and late bud or early bloom for legumes. Ted Wiseman explains in this week's All About Grazing column.
