Got some turned out today.

Post by sim.-ang.king » Sat Apr 20, 2019 10:16 pm

Got part of the cows moved, and turned out on the wheat/rye patch today. Hope to get more turned out on Monday.
Planted October 4th after the corn was off, 50/50 wheat/cereal at 85#, with 10# of crimson clover, and 2# of turnips. The clover and turnips both got froze out in a rare deep freeze in the second week of November. Would of done better overall with a lot less rain, and less freezing October through December.

Fescue is doing good too after getting a shot of nitrogen last week.

It takes a while Sim, you would be into the latter half of spring now? Looks good though.

Looking very nice. We finally got some rain today, so hopefully it'll be a good boost for the grass and will be able to move some out on grass already.

Looks good. Seeing your pictures makes me count my blessings. The looks of your trees/crops makes me realize your a couple weeks behind me here. I was chewing my arms off a month ago wanting spring.
Your not a small business owner. Your a stay at home mom trapped in a pyramid scheme.

Is the cover to be cut for hay? I have some cereal rye I can graze, but I don't want to ruin my hay crop.

Ruin it? Managed grazing will increase yields. Mostly because of the applied fertility from trampling organic matter, manure, and urine.

I was hoping to see a response. With wheat, I've always heard not to graze it after it jointed or it would hurt the grain yield. I didn't know if this was true for hay yields as well. At what point do you pull them off for hay on rye or wheat?
