Subject: Stockpile Grazing Questions


Oklahoma
Have cows on fescue and bermuda with some clover in it down in a flood plain. Couldn't get the last cutting off this fall so first time grazing this place to stretch hay. Cows were hammering the green and ignoring the bermuda, so we started strip grazing it off. That got me from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Then we got wet and it has been a nightmare since. Standing water everywhere so we hot wired them up on a knoll we could use as a sacrifice area and hauled hay to them. The fescue and clover is under pecan trees that I don't want to compact the soil by grazing too wet. Have about 30 acres of sandy ground that is mostly bermuda/johnsongrass I can strip off but I am not sure if they will eat it or not since they are use to the green stuff. Would love to be able to graze the sandy stuff and when the clay dries, move back to the green stuff. So any advice on moving them to the dry matter and getting them to eat it other than increase protein? Thanks.
