Many, many years ago this 'stockpiling' idea was tried in central Missouri by some of the larger acreage farmers, and if they ran dry cows on it it was okay - IF - they had good combination grass and clover. Most of the clover there was Lespedeza, and that did - okay - and that is about all. Nowadays the varieties and combinations are so much better than they were then that I think it is a marvelous idea. I don't know how Buffalo Grass or Bluestem or Crested Wheatgrass or Smooth Brome with Birdsfoot Trefoil or some othere compatible clover would work in the West. Does anyone stockpile for fall and winter grazing in the Sandhills or Montana, Wyoming or Colorado now? What mixtures do you use if you are doing that?the_jersey_lilly_2000 wrote:Can't, our hayfield is outside the fence with a train tracks between it and the pasture. We are in the process tho of cross fencing. So maybe when that gets further along we can try it there.
