Twice a week for the last month, we have helped Ira and Seth with the rotational grazing project by collecting fecal and forage samples from 24 calves on 12, one-acre paddocks. The goal is to gather information about what the cattle eat and how plant communities respond in different grazing situations.
Soil testing offers information that can lead to more informed decision-making and ultimately greater productivity and profitability. Sample in early spring for summer crops and in the summer for fall and winter crops.
Forages contain nutrients that affect individual animal production (gain per animal) while the amount of forage produced affects production per acre.
