Spring Oats

Spring Oats

A unique species that grows very quickly after planting and is typically ready for grazing after 45-55 days or for hay in 65-70 days. Plant spring oats in the fall (Sept-Oct) or late winter (Feb-Mar). Fall planted oats provide forage at a time where we need it most, late fall and early winter. Winter kill is an issue if temperatures reach the teens for several days. Spring oats can also be planted in late winter for quick spring grazing, baleage production, and even dry hay. Consider planting spring oats with a cold-tolerant annual to ensure ground cover.

  • Good “emergency” forage (late winter planting) OR the quickest fall forage (fall planting)
