Managing Fall Pastures

When farmers think of fall, harvest is probably the first thing that comes to mind. But it's important not to let managing fall pastures fall off your radar during the hustle and bustle of harvest time. This week I don't have my own words of wisdom to share; instead I'm sharing with you an article I personally reference and have re-read many times over the years that's a very informative piece on fall grazing management. Enjoy!
