A Field Guide to Winter Cereal Rye Forage Quality

Abstract

Winter cereal rye is a durable cover crop for cold climates with potentially good forage yield and quality. Although forage yield and forage quality are inversely related and a compromise must occur, the resilience of this crop allows frequent, early harvests and provides a source of high quality forage early in the season before other forages are typically ready for grazing or mechanical harvest.
