Mississippi livestock producers looking for methods to reduce feeding costs may find forage brassicas a crop worth exploring. Brassicas fit well with forage-based production systems by extending the grazing season into the late fall and early spring. The fall grazing of brassicas, along with other production techniques, such as intensive rotational stocking and stockpiling (forage allowed to accumulate for grazing at a later time), could allow producers to rely on forage as the main source of nutrition for their livestock enterprise.
