Hay, Balage, and Forage Quality School-Day 1 Presentations

March 4 - March 13, 2014


The CNY Dairy and Field Crops Team will begin monitoring hay fields May 13 for our First Cutting Forage Quality Project. If you arenít familiar there is a very good correlation between alfalfa height and the level of Neutral Detergent Fiber in not only alfalfa but also grasses.

The team monitors fields throughout our region in May to give forage producers some idea of the optimal time to harvest that important 1st cutting. When to start varies as much as 2 weeks in our region depending where you are, elevation and soil type. So keep a watch you should receive your first project summary next week.
