Beef News

Six new articles have been posted in this week’s issue number 1258 of the Ohio BEEF Cattle letter: http://u.osu.edu/beef/

By now, you’ve likely seen first-hand or through photos the damage that can be done by the fall armyworm to any one of well over 100 different types of plants upon which they feed including most grasses and turf, alfalfa, soybeans, beets, cabbage, peanuts, onion, cotton, pasture grasses, millet, tomato, and potato, to name a few. You’ll want to keep monitoring forages (and turf), especially new seedings, for feeding damage well into fall because, depending on weather, fall armyworm could be here for a while! This week we focus on the damage they can do, and what might be done about it.

Articles this week include:

  • Unusual Armyworm Outbreaks are Taking Many by Surprise
  • Autumn Forage Harvest Management
  • Watch for Fall Armyworm, Carefully Consider the Alternatives
  • Preconditioning – Why it pays
  • August Hay Production Estimates and Planning for Winter Feeding
  • Direct Reports
