Fall stockpiling for winter grazing has been a common practice to extend the grazing season in Virginia for many years. Despite an overabundance of spring pasture growth that is commonly harvested for hay, the need for fall pasture often limits the acreage that can be set aside for winter grazing. A novel system developed at the Shenandoah Valley Agricultural Research and Extension Center (SVAREC) enhances producers’ ability to maximize fall stockpiled acreage and consistently extend the grazing season.
