Start stockpiling forage growth now

-A A +A
By Steve Moore

Early August is the time to begin stockpiling pasture for fall and winter use. We use the term ‘stockpiling’ a lot in the forage/livestock industry to describe the process of allowing forage growth on selected pastures or hay fields for use at a later date. Most often, we recommend stockpiling a field of straight fescue by stimulating late summer and early fall growth with additional nitrogen. When things are good, we can get 26 pounds of additional dry matter yield on stockpiled fescue per pound of nitrogen applied on Aug. 15.
