UNL Extension offers cornstalk grazing strategies

· November 16, 2016

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.
