Alfalfa and winter damage

April 24, 2009
Wayne Schoper — Brown/Nicollet Extension Educator

This last winter was an old-fashioned winter with lots of cold weather and snow. We have had a slow warm-up and some additional cold days between some warm and sunny ones. Because we do raise a significant amount of alfalfa in this area we have to be concerned with winter hardiness and alfalfa stand longevity. Brown and Nicollet Counties have approximately 15,000 head of dairy cattle and a similar number of beef cattle that consume alfalfa hay and haylage as part of their diet.
