Intercropping Corn for Livestock Grazing Strategies

Aerial view of cornfield

The TACLP at Olds College is partnering with the University of Manitoba to identify the potential for intercropping corn with high protein forages. This could increase the nutritive value of these mixed stands for beef cattle grazing in late fall/early winter under Western Canadian conditions. Due to the growing interest in intercropping, crop/livestock integration, and regenerative agriculture, these new grazing strategies could enhance the long-term resiliency, adaptability, competitiveness, and profitability of Canadian beef production to enhance food security.
