IDE SENTINEL TRIBUNE ) Wednesday, May 26, 2010 Page 3 .Get ready,for 0000arlv Authors visit Westbrook f00rst harvest or ,alfalfa Author and By Paul Peterson U of MN Ext. For high-quality forage, prepare to take first harvest earlier than normal this year. The early warm weather this spring has perennial forage stands offto the races. Forage stands that shouldn&apos;t be harvested early include those for animals with low to medium nutri- tional needs, and stands that suffered some winter injury and thus need more time to build more below-ground energy reserves to power second-crop growth. Also, if you need more "effective fiber" in your ration, allow- ing more maturation before first harvest may make sense. As pure alfalfa stands develop in spring, their rela- tive feed value (RFV) gener- ally declines 3-4 units per day, while relative forage quality (RFQ) declines 4-5 units per day. These chang- es correspond with neutral detergent fiber (NDF) con- centration increasing 0.5 per- cent units per day, and NDF digestibility decreasing 0.5 percent units per day. NDF values reflect the amount of forage an animal can con- sume. As NDF percentages increase, dry matter intake generally decreases. To assist growers with first-harvest scheduling, University of Minnesota Extension coordinates a 'scissors-cut harvest- alert' program in central Minnesota, led by Extension crops educator Dan Martens. Beginning the first week of May, several alfalfa fields around central Minnesota will be sampled for standing- crop quality every Monday and Thursday, in collabora- tion with farmers and com- mercial forage testing labs. Results will be shared online at www.extension., via radio at KASM (Albany and Princeton area) and KLTF (Little Falls), and via phone at 1-800-964-4929, ext. 5081. These results help with planning, although alfalfa development can vary greatly with location, soil type, stand health, etc. Monitor your own stands closely. A useful tool to estimate quality of standing forage is a Predictive Equations of Alfalfa Quality (PEAQ) stick or yard stick. PEAQ sticks use maturity and height to estimate RFV/RFQ of pure alfalfa stands, and can be purchased from the Midwest Area news briefs Fulda Free Press - Nate Fremstad's Eagle Scout Ceremony was held last Sunday. To achieve Eagle Scout status, Fremstad planned and organized his Eagle Scout Service Project, and then obtained help from several friends to clean debris from the Fulda Lakes, as well as building three wooden decorative garbage container covers. Lamberton News - Lamberton Stockyards, Wilson Trailer Repair and Dan's Repair were burglarized over the weekend. At all three locations, an undetermined amount of currency was taken from locked locations inside the business. Murray Co. News - At a special meeting of the Murray Country Board of Commissioners recently, Steve Robinson, SEH Inc., submitted a probable cost of $1,365,200 for the addition and renovation of the law enforcement sPace at the government center. The. board made a motion to request one more estimate from SEH. Tracy Headlight Herald -,'A vision for a new Traey Public Library has been unveiled. The library board has offered $62,500 for the building at 189 Third St., owned by Glenda Johnson. She has accepted the offer, and a purchase agreement has been signed by Johnson and city representatives. Windom Citizen - Tax abatement was one of the key agenda items at the recent meeting of Windom city coun- cil. New Vision Cooperative is planning a significant construction project on 16th street.

The cur- rently available RFQ-PEAQ sticks provide good esti- mates of RFV, but recent Wisconsin and Minnesota data have shown that stick readings should be adjusted to provide a better estimate of RFQ. Based on northeastern U.S. data, Cornell University has developed guidelines to estimate standing-crop qual- ity of alfalfa/grass mixtures based on alfalfa height and an estimate of grass percentage. The assumption is that the target standing-crop NDF for 'dairy-quality' forage rang- es from 38 percent for pure alfalfa to 50 percent for pure grass. Based on their data, a 70:30 alfalfa:grass mixture is ready to harvest when the alfalfa is 29 inches tall; a 50:50 mixture is ready when alfalfa is 24 inches tall, and a 30:70 mixture when alfalfa is 19 inches tall. More informa- tion on harvest scheduling is available on the Extension forages website at www.
