  • Millet is good addition to forage

    During the hot summer months, adding warm-season annuals to a grazing system can provide a high quality forage when cool-season grasses and legumes decrease in production and quality.

    Adding millets can reduce or end the need for feeding stored feeds, reduce overgrazing of cool-season grasses in the “summer slump,” and increase field stocking density.
