A solid forage management program has several aspects to it. In many cases, minimizing purchased feed costs and improving daily gain on pastures can have a huge bottom-line impact for cattle producers. Our Rancher Roundtable panel, brought to you by Coreteva Agriscience, breaks down various ways to maximize pasture productivity and forage production. We'll discuss various aspects that can help maximize a pasture's productivity.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Range and pasture land provides the lowest-cost feed for cattle
- Ranchers should develop and analyze their grazing strategies to get the most out of their land
- Herbicides can play a role by decreasing weed and brush competition, opening up the potential to grow more grass
