Summer Feast Mixture

A high energy summer grazing or wildlife food plot mixture. Millet balances out the rich brassica with effective fiber, which slows rate of passage through the rumen. The two species provide a multi-level and more diverse warm weather forage, and the different growing habits complement each other well. Both species can uptake and use nitrogen quite well. This mix can be a good way to renovate a pasture. As with a straight stand of millet, there is no threat of prussic acid.

Soil pH should be 6.0-6.5, and soil temperatures should be 65 degrees and rising.

For best grazing wait approximately 45 days before grazing, and leave 4-6” of stubble for best regrowth.

Note: Livestock should be eased onto a brassica crop, as it takes a few days for livestock to acquire a desire for the crop if never grazed before.
