Grazing Opportunities with Cereal Rye
Download Full Text
Cereal rye is commonly used in cow-calf production to extend the grazing season, provide early spring forage, or as an emergency area for spring calving during inclement weather. Cattle producers can utilize cereal rye in other ways as well – to develop replacement heifers, to graze stocker cattle, or to provide a soft-surfaced, dust-free area for incoming calves that will eventually move to a feedlot.
