Hay

Intimidator spring forage oat is a medium maturing, semi-tree oat that produces huge yields of sweet forage. Whether used as hay cut in the boot stage, green chop, silage, or pasture, Intimidator oats are highly palatable, with livestock preferring them over many of the oat varieties commonly used today. Intimidator oats work well by themselves, or in a combination with spring peas, such as OreGro's Secada peas. By including peas or vetch, and cutting at the proper maturity, the resulting forage will have a maximum relative feed value, with high protein and TDN levels. 


Benefits

  • Huge forage yields                                 
  • Sweet, Palatable
  • Excellent for green chop, silage, hay                                           
  • Mixes well with peas and vetch 
  • Possible double cropping

Details

  • Hay yields have been known to reach seven tons per acre. At maturity, silage tonnage has topped 25 tons per acre. In comparison to corn silage, Intimidator oats take less time to mature, and requires less than 1/3 the nitrogen. Intimidator oats are also easier to establish in cooler, wetter climates, so double cropping with another crop is possible. In the proper climate, a hay, green chop, or silage crop can be grown, followed, by a corn silage crop. Seeding rate: 80-120 lbs./acre. Sow in the spring after the last killing frosts.
