Taking the time to plan your pastures and hay land can boost forage productivity and cattle performance, and save you headaches later in the season. A new video in the Beef Research School series features Steve Eby, a producer from Kincardine, Ontario, who shares his planning process. While planing summer grazing areas, Eby considers drought and moisture tolerant forage species based on the topography of his land, cattle flow, watering options, and seeding and harvesting equipment.
Stay tuned for more episodes of the Beef Research School. Past episodes covered pain mitigation, antimicrobial resistance, and ruminal acidosis. For more information on the Beef Research School, visit www.beefresearch.ca/blog/new-video-series/
