Using In-Season Response for Effective Management of Nitrogen Fertilizer in Bermudagrass Hay Pastures
Bermudagrass is responsive to nitrogen fertilization. New technologies allow for more efficient fertilizer application and decreased production costs.
The abundance of forage, combined with excellent cattle prices, has different repercussions for different operations. If you are predominantly a cow-calf producer, then you have to be concerned about a potentially higher-than-normal taxable income, and if you are a stocker operator, then you have to deal with much higher input costs.
White clover is the most widely used cool-season pasture legume throughout the world due to its aggressive running stems, called stolons, and its excellent reseeding ability. Can cultivars available to producers in the southeast U.S. be adapted for the southern Great Plains?
Keep these tips in mind when handling cattle in the pasture and corrals.
This report includes a production update for 2004 of two current bermudagrass variety trials on the Ardmore Headquarters Farm.
While the computer's use as a financial record-keeping tool will continue to be my emphasis, there are other opportunities for the use of the computer, particularly through the Internet.
Drought is a dirty word around these parts. A project between the Noble Research Institute and Texas A&M University hopes to help regional producers with a system to forecast probable forage growth conditions up to 90 days in the future.
There are two ways to measure the value of a soil test - one way is to look at the cost of lost production from inefficient fertilizer use, and another is to look at potential cost savings if over-fertilization is stopped.
All venison is not equal. Venison can be consistently excellent table fare, or, with poor handling and preparation, can be about the quality of a boot sole.
In May 2004, we concluded the second year of the Noble Research Institute's hoop house strawberry trial, the objective of which is to evaluate the performance of commercial strawberry varieties grown in the growth-enhancing environment of a hoop house.
