2017 First Cutting Forage Quality Project

The CNY Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops Team has begun monitoring hay fields for our First Cutting Forage Quality Project. If you aren't 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. Check out the Forage Quality section of our website for more information.
