Grazing pastures in the fall

November 7, 2008
From WAYNE SCHOPER Brown/Nicollet Extension Educator

Many livestock producers, specifically, beef and dairy producers, like to graze cattle well into the autumn months. In fact, in a year like this, where we have some good weather well into November, without any snow cover, we can go up to Thanksgiving or later. The more we can get from our pastures, the longer we can wait to tap our forage supplies that are in the barn or in the silos. Good hay is expensive and the temptation is to leave cattle out on pasture as long as possible to conserve what we do have.
