II I Jenny's REESources By Jenny Rees. L,'NL Extension Crop and Grazing updates: Grate- ful for a nice week for harvesting and tor the good yields being reported! It's also good to see cattle being turned into cornstalks. A reminder to read herbicide labels to understand if there's any grazing restrictions from corn and soybean herbicides applied in-season. It's also important to took for any grazing restrictions on fall-applied her- bicides to control marestail and other germinating weeds. These restrictions can also be found in the 2017 UNL Guide for Weed, Insect and Disease Management on pages 186* 189. The forage, feed and grazing restriction only applies to the crop for which the herbicide was applied. When it comes to grazing cover crops planted into these residues, one must use the re- plant-rotation restriction guidelines found on the herbicide label and also on pages 172-185 of the guide. 1 will also post these on my hlog at If the label doesn't specify any re- strictions, then it should be okay. If you want to be on the safe side, a rule of thumb is to use the pre-harvest inter- val for the amount of time to wait before grazing stalks. Some labels will say residue should not be grazed or baled and fed to livestock. Sometimes studies were actually conducted to know there is a safety concern. In other cases, the chemical company may not choose to conduct all the studies the EPA required for labeling because of high costs. If that's the case, the EPA requires the strongest restrictive lan- guage be placed on the label. Regard- tess, if it says there's a grazing restric- tion on the label, the label needs to be followed as it is a legal document and the law. As you plan for next year's herbi- cide program, if you're thinking about fall cover crops, the hallowing NebGuide may be of benefit to you: /pdffg2276.pdf. Mary Drewnoski has a student. Mary Lenz. looking at cover crops and nitrate toxicity. This study will require the cooperation of producers grazing annual forages to m ake the results prac- tical and accurate. Methemogtobin in the blood, and nitrate levels in the torage will be measured in cattle graz- ing annual forages and cover crops. To measure methemoglobin, a subset of cattle will be gathered and blood samples will be taken. This will occur mid-afternoon, 4-7 days after turnout. This is a simple procedure, and the university can easily provide a por- table corral and chute. To measure nitrates, a quality sample will be cob tooted from the field, froze, and ana- lyzed at the university lab. The data collection will be minimally invasive and should be asimple process. If you are interested or have questions, con- tact Lenz at mlenz7 @, or 307-761-3353. If you haven' t expe- rienced a freeze yet this fall. you simon will. And remember, a freeze can cause hazards for using some forages With a hard freeze predicted this weekend, Bruce Anderson shares the following information: "'Sorghum-re~ lated plants, like cane, sudangrass. shattercane, and milo can be highly toxic for a few days after frost Freez- ing breaks plant cell membranes. This breakage allows the chemicals that form prussic acid, which is also called cyanide, to mix together and release this poisonous compound rapidly. Live- stock eating recently frozen sorghums can get a sudden, high dose of prussic acid and potentially die. Fortunately, prussic acid soon turns into a g&s and disappears into the air. So wait 3 to 5 days after a freeze before grazing sor- ghums: the chance of poisoning then becomes much lower. Freezing also slows down metabolism in all plants. This stress sometimes permits nitrates to accumulate in olants that are still growing, especially grar, ses like oats, millet, and sudangrass. This build-up usually isn't hazardous to grazing ani- mals. but green chop or hay cut right after a freeze can be more dangerous. Alfalfa reacts tv, o way s to a hard freeze, down close to twenty degrees, cold enough to cause plants to wilt. Nitrate levels can increase, but rarely to haz- ardous levels, Freezing also makes al- falfa more likely to cause bloat for a few days after the frost. Then, several days later, after plants begin to wilt or grow again, alfalfa becomes less likely to cause bloat. So waiting to graze alfalfa until well after a hard freeze is a good, safer management practice. Frost causes important changes in for- ages so manage them carefully lor safe feed." On-farna research brainstorming and discussion session: You hear and read about various production prac- tices and products that work for other farmers. You may have questions re- garding a specific practice or product working on your farm. On-farm re- search is a way to answer this for yourselP, In the past. our area on-farm research cooperators met before the growing season to brainstorm ideas and discuss ix~tential research topics together. We are resurrecting this brain- storming and discussion session on Nov. 27, from I to 4 p.m. at the fair- grounds4-H building in Aurora. Farm- ers who have conducted on-farm re- search in the past or are considering on-farm research in the future are en- couraged to attend.
