Managing for Profit
Grazing corn residue
For beef producers short of good quality hay and late pasture growth hampered by dry weather, grazing harvested corn residue is an alternative feed source. Stan Smith, Extension educator in Fairfield County Ohio says managed correctly, one acre of corn residue can yield up to 60 animal unit grazing days (60 days of grazing for a 1000 pound animal).
