Video: Extended Grazing

• Producers can lower winter feeding costs through the extended grazing of corn, swath, bale or stockpiled forage options.

• Extended grazing allows livestock to return most of the nutrients they consume directly to the landscape where they are fed.

• Feed costs maybe less (not always) but yardage/feeding costs are lower as are manure removal costs.

• Manure and feed residues contain valuable nutrients which improve crop and forage productivity and quality.
