Field Notes – September 2023

It’s finally fall – by both the calendar and the weather. What a relief!

Earlier this month, we put on our latest elderberry workshop. In case you missed it, David Redhage has a recap.

Fall is planting time for many cool-season cover crops. Most farmers who try them are convinced by their benefits – so much so that most who start with cover crops for the government payments would keep cover cropping even without them!

Speaking of planting, the Forest Service has major reforestation projects on the drawing board – so big, it can’t even find enough trees for them.

While temperatures may have moderated, drought still lurks. What are you doing to make sure your livestock have access to water? We’ve got some suggestions from here on the ranch.
