A note from the President............

Hello Hereford Enthusiast: The summer has come and gone quickly and has been a wonderful time for our Juniors, Seniors, and our Herefords. June started out with the Junior Shows at Wooster, Caldwell, and their state show at Lebanon. For those who were able to attend any of these events were in for a wonderful time watching the youngsters exhibiting a great set of cattle. It shows a great future of the industry and of our future generation. Then came the Junior National Expo in Louisville, KY with a large turnout of Buckeye Juniors, their families, and of course a super set of cattle from Ohio. It was great watching these youngsters working together and participating in the activities as a group. AND of course how great it was to see the families and cooks providing food to everyone each day. Then came the Ohio State Fair with a large set of cattle and exhibitors in attendance. It seems the cattle keep getting better and the exhibitors keep growing in numbers. Finally the summer came to a conclusion with the FSR. The Hereford barn, the super set of cattle, and the promotional displays were second to none. A big thank you to the Ohio Hereford Women for donating t-shirts and sweatshirts for two daily drawings and to Custom Sign Design for donating a farm sign given to a lucky visitor on Thursday. 2018 is the Buckeye Hereford Association’s 75th birthday and we are already preparing for a celebration of this monumental event. More is to come on this! Marsha Farno, President Buckeye Hereford Association 4 B U C K E Y E H E R E F O R D A S S O C I AT I O N

Notes from the Switzerland of Ohio Polled Hereford Association Field Day on September 30, 2017 By: Christine Gelley of Noble County OSU Extension Pasture Fertility A good pasture starts with good fertility. Just like animals, plants need a variety of nutrients in the right amounts to survive. Soil is the reservoir for these nutrients. The only way to know what nutrients are held in that reservoir and how much is available for your pasture is to soil test. A typical soil test costs $10 to $15, plus shipping. Results are usually available within a week. One bag 50 lb. bag of 19-19-19 fertilizer usually costs more than $20. Why apply fertilizer before you know what fertilizer you need or don’t need? A soil test can save you time and money. Pay attention to pH. Some nutrients are not available to plants when the acidity of the soil is too high or too low. Nutrients may be present in the soil that can be utilized after adjusting the pH. Here are some tips on how to soil test:

            

Sample areas that perform differently separately. 25 acres is MAX area for one sample. 1 sample should come from a collection of 12-20 cores (small samples of the soil profile). Take 12-20 soil cores from random sites across the area. Remove grass from the cores. For most pastures, sample 4-6 inches deep. Combine cores together to a uniform mix and allow to air dry on newspaper at least overnight. Wet soil may mildew between the sample date and when the laboratory processes it. Get a soil sample kit from your chosen lab. Fill the sample bag as directed by the kit with the mixed, dry soil. Complete the sample information form with your sample kit. Send the form and soil to the lab. Results will provide soil nutrient data and give recommendations based on the information given on your sample form. Sample every three years or whenever you plant a new crop. Sample at the same time of year to compare changes over time.

Along with soil sampling, promote good fertility by:   

Incorporating legumes into pasture, ideally 30% or more. Rotationally grazing for good manure distribution. Preventing erosion.

Weed Control In most cases weeds are a sign of an underlying problem. Fertility is a big culprit. Grazing height and frequency are too. Moisture also plays a role. When conditions are right for the plants you want, they thrive. When conditions are wrong for the plants you want, weeds thrive. The task of controlling weeds in pastures is never ending. Part of what makes it such a challenge is that pasture is a diverse ecosystem. When it comes to treating weeds with herbicides they are often broke down into grass weeds and broadleaf weeds. 18 B U10 C K EBUCKEYE Y E H E R E F OHEREFORD R D A S S O C I AT ION ASSOCIATION


Usually pastures contain a mix of desirable grasses and broadleaf plants (ex: legumes). It is difficult to treat problem weeds without damaging desirable plants. Broadleaf herbicides will kill thistles, ironweed, knapweed, pigweed, bedstraw, poison hemlock, marestail, cocklebur, and more, but will also kill clovers and brassicas. Grass herbicides will kill foxtail, barnyard grass, quackgrass, johnsongrass, redtop, and broomsedge, but will also kill orchardgrass, timothy, ryegrass, fescue, oats, and many more. Be careful what you spray and how you spray it. Always follow the instructions on the label. They are not suggestions, they are the law. Grazing multiple species of animals can help control weeds. True grazers like cattle and sheep will prefer fine textured plants. Browsers like goats and deer may prefer plants with a rougher texture. Mowing/brush hogging pastures is also very helpful. For best results clip weeds multiple times throughout the season. Brushy weeds can be more stubborn than those previously mentioned. It takes persistence to achieve good results and maintain control. One of the most effective times for controlling perennial weeds is mid-September to late October. This is when much of the plant’s energy is sent to the roots, which means systemic herbicides will be most effective at killing the whole plant. Mechanical control is also effective in the fall because plants have transitioned into their reproductive phase. For more information about how to treat weeds in your specific circumstance, talk to your County Extension Educator or consult the 2017 Weed Control Guide. You can find a PDF copy of the guide online at: https://u.osu.edu/osuweeds/files/2016/12/2017-Weed-Control-Guide-tnkpfi.pdf.

Producers figuring available tonnage and proper stocking rates at the Green Valley Farm field day.

Utilize All of Your Pasture After you have gone through all the effort to create a good pasture, make sure that your animals utilize it for its greatest value. Take care not to overgraze or undergraze your pastures. Overgrazing isn’t always obvious. Overgrazing can occur when stocking density is too high, stocking period is too long, or due to selective grazing. Cattle will graze their favorite plants and ignore the others as long as there is enough to eat. This can lead to rapid decline of desired species and/or increased weed pressures. 18 B U C K E Y E H E R(CONT. E F O R D PAGE A S S O C13) I AT I O N

(CONT. FROM PAGE 11)

Undergrazing can also lead to problems. Old leaves have lower nutritive value than young leaves. Plants that are too tall shade out other leaves and legumes. Rough, over mature, grasses can also cause abrasions to the eyes of cattle and contribute to pink eye. Promote full utilization of your pastures by:

    

Rotating among pastures. Stockpiling for times of stress. Having water readily available. Fencing out lounging areas. Combating weeds. Rotationally grazing is the best method for utilizing pasture to it’s fullest potential. There are many tools available to help develop and maintain a successful rotation. They include:

         

Pasture Stick- To help measure dry matter available for grazing. Grazing Equations- To determine how many animals can graze and for how long. Calculator- To check your work. Calendar- To aide your memory. Pasture Map- To develop paddocks with ease of access to food, water, and handling facilities. Temporary Electric Fence- To adjust paddock size and shape as you wish. Solar Charged Battery- For efficiency. Plentiful & Accessible Water Record Book- To make improvements as you go. Extension Agent- To help fill in the blanks.
