Winter Oat

Cosaque Black Oats

closeup of a leaf of cosaque black oat

An overwintering oat that has a wide leaf and dense crown, Cosaque has superb weed suppression. It is perfect for grazing or baleage production and cover cropping but is challenging to produce dry hay.

  • Moderate fall and tremendous spring production
  • Highly palatable and digestible
  • Root-knot nematode suppression
  • Relatively tolerant of “wet feet"

    These are pics of my custom fall mixture of Cosaque winter oats, triticale, and austrian winter peas. I am so happy with this mixture! I have grazed it 7-8 times.
