Mustang Graze

  • Mustang Graze is an annual forage plant for silage, grazing, cover crop or green chopping
  • It has excellent early growth and grows very tall
  • The tonnage is extremely high and is very palatable
  • It can be planted either in rows, drilled or broadcast. Seeding should be at 10 to 12 pounds per acre in rows or 20 to 30 pounds per acre broadcast
  • It is very sweet juicy and leafy. The heavier the planting, the finer the stems will be. For pasture uses, a rotating system is suggested. Ideal grazing height is 24 to 36 inches
  • Normal grazing precautions should be observed. Before green chopping the plants should reach a height of 24 to 36 inches
  • Usually Mustang Graze will yield 3 to 6 cuttings depending on planting time, moisture and temperatures. For hay the plants should reach boot stage and ideally be followed by a conditioner after cutting
  • Recommended usage: silage crops where it is not practical to use corn, such as when circumstances require a fast growing crop for late or delayed re-planting
  • Planting should be delayed until the soil is warm enough to germinate seed (60 to 70 degrees)
