Corn residue is a valuable feed resource for beef cattle. There are over 10 million acres planted to corn in Nebraska every year. It is estimated that less than 25% of these acres are grazed. When corn stalk residue is grazed appropriately, research has shown no reduction in grain yield for corn or soybeans in the year following corn residue grazing. Dr. Rasby explains how cattle graze corn residue and what an appropriate stocking rate for utilization is.
