Stockpiled Bermudagrass Can Reduce Winter Feed Costs
Harvested forage costs are a large part of the production costs associated with cow-calf enterprises. A recent Oklahoma State University trial had the objective to economically evaluate stockpiled bermudagrass. The research found that this practice can reduce cow-wintering costs. Forage accumulation during the late summer and fall is variable from year to year depending on moisture, temperatures, date of first frost and fertility.
