Wheat silage for beef cattle
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Some Missouri cattle feeders are cutting wheat for silage then planting the field with corn silage or grain sorghum to produce a large tonnage of feed per acre. When wheat is cut early for silage instead of grain, there is more time for growing the second crop. Cattle feeders have produced 70 to 120 bushels of grain sorghum per acre after harvesting 7 to 9 tons of wheat silage per acre.
