Forage Managment Calendar

Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec


  • Complete August forage seedings.
  • Continue to harvest established forages on a 30 to 35 day schedule.
  • Continue scouting for potato leaf hoppers.
  • Harvest spring seeded forages approximately 75 days after seeding.
  • Inventory harvested forage. If additional forage needs to be purchased consider buying them locally "out of the field". This maybe cheaper than waiting till winter and purchasing them.
  • Sample and test hay and silage for forage quality.
  • Stop grazing those cool-season forage paddocks that will be stockpiled for grazing in November or December.
