Intermediate Wheatgrass is a cool season sod forming grass primarily used for pasture, hay, and erosion control. It has good seedling vigor and can be spring or fall seeded. Because of its forage quality, it is included in our Cool Season Pasture Mix.
The Oahe variety is used on hay and pasture ground as well as areas where soil conservation is an issue. It is a blue-green cool season grass spreading by rhizomes which is drought tolerant and winter hardy.
A newer forage release for yearling beef cattle. Beefmaker, a sod forming, cool season perennial grass, is a new release by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Agriculturure Service at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln (UNL). Beefmaker Wheatgrass is broadly adapted and produces forage that is high in in vitro dry matter digestibility (IVDMD) and protein. Beefmaker is ideally adapted for concentration in the tall, mid-grass and short-grass regions of the Central Great Plains. In forage trials across the region Beefmaker had the highest average IVDMD and protein levels of all entries.
In mixtures or planted alone, Beefmaker will improve gains in cattle and also make a nutritous addition for other animals as well. Look for Beefmaker as an additional grass with our Cool Season Pasture Mix.
