Oklahoma Drought Persists, Forage Management Important

The drought of 2012 continues throughout the state of Oklahoma (Drought Monitor), and for much of the High Plains region, as we move into 2013. Most of the winter wheat crop is currently classified as being in Poor or Very Poor condition. This brings a focus on  intensive management of forage and livestock supplies. Dr. Daren Redfearn, Oklahoma State University, explains tips for grazing management, stubble height throughout the dormant season in this segment of SUNUP TV.

Be sure to learn more about the continuing drought in Oklahoma, market discussions, and winter nutrition in this week’s full SUNUP Tv show.
