WinField United Alfalfa and Forage Specialist Jeff Jackson tells farmers if their alfalfa crop had a hard freeze, they may be able to wrap it up. “Farmers should cut the alfalfa higher than normal so they don’t have too much stem and have something to catch snow later. The part of South Dakota that doesn’t have much snow, they could still take some hay.” Jackson says there is still some forage sorghum standing in the fields. “Farmers will want to get this harvested as quickly as possible, because the stalk integrity will go fast.”
