UNL Extension offers cornstalk grazing strategies
Before sending the herd out for cornstalk grazing, an estimate should be made of the amount of corn that is present in the field. Any amount beyond 8-10 bushels per acre will require a well-planned grazing strategy to ensure that too much grain is not consumed by grazing cattle.
If there is excessive corn on the ground, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension suggests these strategies to help minimize the risk of digestive upsets (acidosis), lameness and abortions for cattle grazing the cornstalks.
