“In the spring, you see lush growth and leaves – that’s the root system releasing its stored nutrients into the growth. With multiple cuttings, plants get spindly, grow more slowly, and the nutrient quality isn’t as good after each cutting. That’s when you see fewer cuttings or cattle eating pasture down faster than it will grow. Grass is resting during the winter months, but you’re still dealing with challenges of keeping the root system.
“When you winterize with MLC and Hay-Now, you’re contributing to soil health by revving up the soil biology as the plant goes into dormancy. MLC also speeds residue break down, improves moisture management, resolves compaction from weather or heavy grazing traffic, and enhances micronutrient uptake. In the spring, the soil is now getting more oxygen and the plant is getting more nutrients. Your fields will grow longer, grow back faster, and you may get more cuttings.”
