What stage are the plants in and what grains? :?


2000 miles has'nt slowed you down before, plants are mainly oats, but a few fields are oat,wheat rye mixed, bout knee high to a jack rabbit.
Good luck

Since you so desperately want my opinion :lol: I'd watch the rye fields as it starts to mature as those awns on Rye are mean and sticking their heads down to graze could possibly cause eye trouble.as long as the other grains haven't matured to much to where they have a bunch of grain in the heads you should be OK.

Aint nuthin gonna be on those fields when they head out, hunters will use them during deer season, then I will run a few cull cows & hay burners on them all winter then when it starts warmin up and pastures green up, i chase em all out and ask the rain Gods to be kind, buy some hi dollar liquid nitrogen and cut rake and bale if my luck holds.
Speaking of luck I sold all my cows a few years back waiting for the weather to break and me and the buyer cut a deal he could pick through them , well I wound up with about 10 he didnt want and was gonna haul em to the sale barn just never got hi on my list of things to do, I was back there a few days ago and found 2 new calves, if there is a bull jumping the fence he is mighty good at getting back home after getting after them scrubs i have cause I dont see the fences down or a sign of a bull anywhere.
I got 2 bulls in the pens close to the house that Im feeding but it aint them, bull caint jump a 7 foot fence, might crawl one ? but I feed these every day there aint been out, anyway I dont know wheter thats good luck or bad.
good luck

PS Tell Misss Tam I would like to take her to a New Years party lotsa pickin/singin and good food (charcoaled Ribeye) and whiskey, you stay home and tend the stock :D
