Each year more farms are adding winter forage, especially triticale, to their crop toolbox. The high yields and very high-quality forage quality are a real bright spot in this gloomy economic condition on many dairy farms. High yield of high quality is not something you buy, but rather through the application of management. Research, much supported by NY Farm Viability, over the past 18 years (and still on-going) shows that fall and spring nitrogen plus sulfur are critical. The key question: when and how much are enough?
