Fall Feed

Can I irrigate and plant a forage crop n July to feed dairy cows this

fall and winter? Would you recommend cow peas or some kind of sugar

corn? If cow peas, how many pounds to the acre?

If you wet down the land thoroughly and then plow and harrow and plant

either cow peas or Indian corn, you ought to get a good green crop

before frost. Drill in or drop the seed in rows about three feet apart

and keep cultivating and irrigating as long as you can get through

without injuring the crop too much. Use about 40 pounds of cow peas to

the acre.
