Augustine Obour with Kansas State University organized a successful cover crop field day at the HB Ranch near Brownell, Kansas, on May 19th. The day was wet and cool, but many turned out to hear about KSU research looking at spring and summer cover crops that are grazed, hayed, or left in the field. We also presented preliminary results from Year 1 of the grazed cover crop on-farm study.
Treatments have been established for three out of the six fields provided to us by producers participating in the spring cover crop grazing. The wheat near Bucklin was at heading or getting close. In Almena and Grainfield the wheat was still in the boot, but getting close! There were a lot of beautiful sites on this journey. I've included a few neat pictures at the end.
