This report includes a production update for 2004 of two current bermudagrass variety trials on the Ardmore Headquarters Farm.
The Controlled-Rotation Grazing Unit at the Pasture Demonstration Farm has many facets and alternative techniques of forage and beef cattle management. The unit is somewhat stable in management approach, but we do adjust and/or add to it occasionally.
Stockpiled bermudagrass is a viable alternative to feeding hay to steers after weaning or receiving and prior to winter grazing.
Establishment of bermudagrass is a major expense. Care should be taken to do everything possible to ensure success.
Drought and heavy grazing pressure have weakened many bermudagrass stands. Here are some steps you can take to improve bermudagrass production.
2006 was one of the driest growing seasons on record, low rainfall translated to less forage production, low hay production, overgrazing and, in some cases, total stand losses.
Manage for the forage that you want and you might be pleasantly surprised at the response of your target species.
We could go into a discussion about soil testing, yield goals and productive potential of the soil, but this article is limited to efficient nitrogen rates. Research and observations have indicated that a certain amount of nitrogen must be applied to satisfy requirements of other plant parts before additional forage is produced.
Fertilizer, swathing, raking, baling and labor expenses can push the cost of haying bermudagrass up to $30/ton or more. With that kind of investment, it's important to implement proper management to assure a positive return.
The performance of bermudagrass varieties in two trials conducted at the Foundation is addressed in this production update.
