Depends on your options and livestock class. Might pay for stockers.
I prefer fall planted rye. It comes on before the perennial grass.

So do I but was not a viable option this time because of lack of moisture. Spring oats was maybe a option for early spring grazing.

Let's say 10 acres of oats.
100 lb of oats/acre at $12 a bag=$240
150 lb 13-13-13/acre at $13 a bag= $390
Let's say fuel cost to disc it up, broadcast, and drag is $100
So for $730 you'd have ten acres of good oats, if it rains. I'll give it a try next fall.

:2cents: I've spring planted left over seed and it did well. But if by spring you mean after last frost, you would be better off with haygrazer or millet. :2cents:
It will continue to give through summer

How much grazing would this provide? As in cattle number x days

If planted today You might get part of February, march, April and a bit of May as long as the rust stays out of it. So say 75 days or so.

In 2011 the bulk of ours didn't get enough moisture to come up till Christmas Day rains. It did ok.
