The variation in nutrient content can have a negative impact on the productivity of the animals concerned, whetherthey are lactating cows or growing heifers. This negative impact is particularly critical if the producer considers the ration has sufficient nutrient content based on mean values.As a result the variation in nutrient should be taken into account when formulating therations."

The most profitable improvements can be achieved by addressing the items at the top of this list."

    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Cool-season perennial grass and grass-legume pastures typically become less productive as the grazing season advances from June to November. Forage brassica crops such as turnip, swede, rape, and kale can be spring-seeded to supplement the perennial cool-season pastures in August and September or summer-seeded to extend the grazing season in November and December. Brassicas are annual crops which are highly productive and digestible and can be grazed 80 to 150 days after seeding, depending on the species."

As a result, improving corn yields by an average of 5 to 10 bushels per acre through careful attention to hybrid selection is not unrealistic."
