Forages May be the Answer if Replant Options are Limited
Crop disasters like hail and flash floods can happen any time and when they do, replanting options may be needed. Sometimes replanting a grain crop may be nearly impossible due to the late planting date or herbicide carryover. In these instances, annual emergency forage crops may be an option.

Pasture and Hayland Fertilizer
Pasture and hayland grass growth is stimulated by fertilizer just like other crops. Nebraska grazing research has shown that you get one pound of additional calf or yearling gain for every pound of nitrogen fertilizer applied. To make the most of your fertilizer dollar, manage grazing so more of what you grow actually gets eaten. Jerry Volesky, Nebraska Extension Hay and Forage Specialist.MP3

Pasture Lease Agreements
Pasture leasing plays an important role in cattle production. It is important that lease agreements are fair, and in writing. The lease should define price, stocking rate and a disaster clause. Jay Jenkins, Nebraska Extension Educator.MP3
