Abstract

Decreased forage acres across Iowa have left cattlemen with the challenge of optimizing existing resources without compromising productivity of the land and cow herd. One solution is incorporating annual forages into the farming operation. However, many questions remain regarding species selection and application on the farm level. The objective of this demonstration project is to compare feed value and yield potential of various cool- and warm-season annual forages.
