    I have a strip outside of my pasture fencing, about 15' wide and 300 yards long. I am planing on planting a row crop to supplement my cattle feeding, but don't know what would be best. Any suggestions? I have enough seed to plant anyone of these three- corn, wheat, or oats. Can anyone give me a clue.

    We have planted oats and wheat we had soso results. We plant corn and get superb results. Ive seen others plant oats and wheat and they get really good results.

    Can anyone advise on best practices for growing alfalfa? I just received a 10 lbs bag of seed and want to start it right.

    Oats is best because you can mix it with hay

    Use some

    Japanese Millet.

    big tonnage...15 to 25 tons per acre ( it likes heat and dry so seed it after frost risk ).

    haying it, you can cut it 3 to 5 times.
