Better Forage For Cows & Calves Through Proactive Blackberry And Thistle Control

Proactive management of forage to control unwanted thistle and blackberry can increase the value of the forage and promote healthier cows and calves. High nutrient value is important for cow-calf production. Controlling blackberries is better when treated just before fruit develops. Thistle is best controlled with treatment in the spring season. But some thistle, depending on variety, is better treated in the fall for better benefit the following year.
