With the winter upon us now is the critical time to manage your pastures effectively to get the most out of paddocks when pasture growth rates are slow. Some can begin planning for paddocks that are suitable for silage in September/October and even nitrogen applications if soil moisture is not too high. If experiencing very wet paddocks, if possible sacrifice some paddocks to get pugged more than others, giving other paddocks more of a spell so they can recover quickly as growth rates increase.
With paddock management in mind now is a good time to think about what you may like to sow early spring. Tonic plantain or Winfred forage brassica are two popular and successful products that have been successful in an early spring sowing in southern regions.
