BeefTalk: Crested Wheatgrass Needs Grazing Management
Kris Ringwall, Beef Specialist, NDSU Extension Service
The spring is a bit cooler than normal, and grazing vigorous and productive cool-season grasses is still on the menu. Cool-season grasses, such as crested wheat in the northern Plains, are a top priority for many cattle operations. Cattle producers are grass producers, so appropriate grass management determines the success of the overall grazing season. Moisture and temperature impact grass production, but managerial tweaks keep grass at its best.
