Wet spring beneficial for IL forages


A western Illinois cattle producer says the rainy spring has been beneficial for their forage crop.

Trevor Maiers, of MAC Cattle Company in Adams County, tells Brownfield…

“Really, it’s been a great spring in terms forage as compared to last year.”  He says, “We chop and bale triticale as a cover crop to feed our animals with and it’s the best tonnage we’ve ever had.”

He says adding triticale to their feeding program has been a success.
