Abstract

In the fall of 2012, the ISU McNay Research Farm, Chariton, Iowa, conducted a trial on strip grazing of cornstalks to extend the normal 40–60 grazing days per cornstalk acre. The goal was to delay feeding hay as long as possible due to limited hay supplies and high costs caused by drought.
