Annual Forage

Forage Oats



Forage Oats are an annual crop used for quick forage yields and are a good source of grain. Oats tend to have excellent quality for forage. They are used for quick forage in the fall or for forage or grain in the spring. They can grow anywhere from 2 - 4 feet tall and are generally more productive and have wider leaves than other smaller grains. The plants will survive until temperatures remain under 20 degrees for several hours.
