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.

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

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.
