Today's cattle business offers unprecedented opportunities for grazing based operations. And now — perhaps more than ever — profitability starts with grass. Markets will reward those who produce forage efficiently and use it to put pounds on marketable cattle, whether they be calves or heavy feeders. It's an incentive — for the foreseeable future — to manage forage well.

It's a New Age for Forage
- Higher corn prices raise the value of forage. It becomes cheaper to put cattle gains on grass rather than in the feedlot.
- As the value of forage has increased, the value of forage management has increased.
Grow More Grass. It's Worth More!
- These cattlemen recognize the ever-increasing value of optimizing forage in their operations.
- Weed control, sound fertility and proper grazing management each contribute to increased forage production and pasture utilization.
Cows Prefer Clean Grass. Even Over Weedy Clover.
- Prior to weed control, cows grazed the pasture relatively uniformly and continued to do so during the first month after treatment.
- Two months after the herbicide application, grazing patterns shifted. Cows grazed 77 percent of the time on the treated half and only 23 percent of the time on the untreated area. Those results remained constant throughout the duration of the grazing season.
