Dr. Anderson discusses the option of making small grain silage from the fields that were planted this past fall and spring as small grains (oats, rye, triticale, wheat, barley). To get some forage early in the season, small grains may be more effectively harvested as silage rather than either grazing, cutting for hay or letting them go all the way to grain. It may also allow some producers to do some double cropping this growing season.
