Dairy cows grazing - Monmouth - Bansen's Double J Jerseys - Anna Roth

Forages respond to good management, whether mechanically harvested for green-chop, hay, or silage or if they are to be grazed by livestock. Components of forage management include species and cultivar selection, establishment, fertilization and nutrient management, pest management, and defoliation management, with the overall objective being to produce high quality forage leading to efficient conversion to animal products.
