June Tips Beef Cattle/Forage Producers
TIPS FOR BEEF CATTLE AND FORAGE PRODUCERS
Beef Management Tips:
(FSA 3019 Growth Implants for Suckling and Grown Beef Cattle).
Forage Management Tips:
Fertilization of warm-season grasses: Fertilize bermudagrass pastures according to
soil test reports taken earlier in the year for projected management (grazing or haying).
Split nitrogen applications by fertilizing after each harvest.
Weed control: Apply herbicides to summer annual broadleaf weeds. MP 522 and MP 44 are outstanding
resources for weed identification and control.
Warm season annual forages: Sorghum-sudan or pearl millet are popular choices as summer annual forages. Harvest
for hay or graze. In either case, leave 6 inches of stubble to reduce risk of nitrate
poisoning. In sorghum-sudan, prussic acid content can be high enough to be toxic and
it will also be present in leaves after the plant is stressed from drought and/or
low temperatures (Reference FSA 2032).
Hay management: For cool season grasses, leave 2-3 inches stubble height to encourage regrowth. Cut
at boot stage/early bloom for optimum forage nutritive value. For bermudagrass cut
when about 18 inches high, then cut approximately every 30 days. For more information
on Management of Hay Production refer to MP 434.
