Agreed. Baled it one year, cows would only eat it with molasses on it. And if there was any wind before it got rolled up, WHAT A MESS! Windrows all over the map!The best thing you can do is work it back into the ground! There is so many good nutrients that be taking too much away for a few bucks you'd get back.
Sound like the same kind of dirt as me, need to preserve moistureMostly no-till so that's the main reason to bale it.
Didn't try that. Ran a bale through the processor and mixed with a couple bales of hay. Would try it again now I think as it would be good mixed with silage, but I think our days of growing peas are close to over... too much root rotGreat feed for cows, high in protein, if you tub grind it and mix in ration it's very good
Several fields in this area were catastrophic failures this year due to root rot, mainly on heavy clay soils.I think our days of growing peas are close to over... too much root rot
Fababeans! If you're Greg Stamp . I think they will play a huge role in keeping legumes in a Central Alberta rotation. Hopefully the feed market can convert to them quickly with the increases in acres.Several fields in this area were catastrophic failures this year due to root rot, mainly on heavy clay soils.
With no solution in sight I'm not sure where this industry is headed.
