Cover crops, controlled grazing showing potential: Part II

Mike Taylor says he and his son, Mike Taylor Jr., believe the earlier you can plant cover crops the better. They took that to something of an extreme on land near Crowley’s Ridge when they planted a 13-way mix of cover crops behind short-season corn last summer. The cows they grazed on the cover crops seemed to prefer the plants to corn, as Taylor explained at the Nutrient Management and Edge of Field Monitoring Conference in Memphis, Tenn.
