I do things a little different than a lot of cattle producers around here in that I calve about half of my 118-cow beef herd in the fall and half in the spring. By feeding the fall cows good quality alfalfa along with a few minerals through the winter, they’re able to get all the protein they need and wean you a calf in the spring that’s just as strong and heavy as one weaned in the fall.
“I’ve had America’s Alfalfa Alfagraze on some of my previous stands and been well satisfied with the yield and quality. However, the dealer suggested the AmeriStand 403T as a replacement because of the traffic tolerance, since I usually get five cuttings; so I just seeded 20 acres of that this past season. I couldn’t believe it, but one field even came through with a good stand after being flooded with 12 inches of rain.
“The main thing I like about the America’s Alfalfa varieties is that they let me raise more quality hay on less acreage and it has the longevity to last for several years.” - - Jerry Todd of Lohman, MO, 26 acres of alfalfa (all America’s Alfalfa) and an America’s Alfalfa grower for over 10 years.
