    and extended basis than a forage crop composed of only a single variety. It has also been demonstrated that sorghum-sudangrass, commonly used by cattlemen for grazing and hay, is a well suit-ed alternative forage crop for crawfish monocropping systems. It grows rapidly, can produce nearly twice the amount of forage.   Western juniper (Juniperus occidentalis subsp. occidentalis) range expansion into sagebrush steppe ecosystems has affected both native wildlife and economic livelihoods across western North potential listing of the greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) under the U.S. Endangered Species Act has spurred a decade of juniper removal efforts, yet limited research .

At $75 per hundredweight lamb prices, net returns for management after 1 year of operation of a flock of 1, ewes were estimated to be $48, for the intensively managed system compared with $9, for the open range system. Overview Pre-Test Instructional Objectives Define forages and differentiate between forage types. Explain how forages have been and are essential to civilization. Summarize the history of forages. Define grassland agriculture. Discuss a typical grassland ecosystem. Define sustainable agriculture and discuss how forages are a key component. List several grassland organizations.

With million head of cattle utilizing forages within a mile radius of Ardmore, Oklahoma, there is significant potential to increase the economic returns from these forages by improving the quantity and quality of existing forages, learning how to more efficiently utilize forages, scrutinizing the.

Sitzia M, Ruiz FA, in Reference Module in Food Science, Forage System. Forage production is oriented toward the production of forage provision, principally hay from a pure stand of alfalfa or from a mixture of different legumes such as vetch.

Cereal production assumes a strategic role in covering sheep feeding requirements. Wheat, barley, oats, triticale and maize are cultivated for.

Other legumes, while providing good forage quality, tend to be lower yielding than alfalfa. The alternatives available for harvested forage tend to be annual crops (table 1). The first portion of the table, covering small grains, is listed in order according to when the crops would normally be harvested for forage.

Alternative Forage Options COVER CROP MIXTURES. Cover crops offer a unique opportunity to diversity risk from environmental conditions. Combinations of difference species increase the odds producing a useful forage crop, either to be grazed, hayed, or ensiled.

if she were a 1, lb cow, we would expect that could eat 35 lbs of hay/day ( x = 35 lbs). Download a hay and forage analysis form here. Download a feed analysis form here. Visit the Soil, Forage, & Water Testing Laboratory online. ALFA Building S.
