Understanding Forage Oats
Oats are a good robust dual purpose cereal for graziers around Australia that can be grazed during the winter months prior to being shut up to be cut for hay. Oats are a great source of on-farm hay production and can be blended with Bullet Annual Ryegrass or Surge Italian ryegrass and clovers to increase yield and quality.
