Forage Quality

Forage samples have been collected from both grazing systems to determine forage quality. The samples were collected from the paddocks that the lambs were being moved to. On July 6, five samples were collected from each paddock and the averages are reported. On the other dates, a single sample was collected from each paddock. Samples were analyzed by Cumberland Valley Analytical Services.


RFV is an index used to compare the quality of forages relative to the feed value of full bloom alfalfa. It is calculated from estimates of digestible dry matter and dry matter intake.
