Many options exist to extend the grazing season.
Cool-season annuals, such as cereal rye, wheat and ryegrass, are a great tool to consider in pastures or following row crops for grazing in late fall to early winter and early spring. They also serve as a cover crop to reduce soil erosion during the winter on tillable acres. Typically, cool-season annuals are planted in the late summer or early fall.
Correct establishment is crucial for the success of any forage.
