Reindeer forage plants in the early grazing season: growth and nutritional content in relation to climatic conditions Warenberg, Kristina Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Science and Technology, Faculty of Mathematics and Science. Kristina Warenberg; Reindeer forage plants in the early grazing season. Reinbeiteplanter tidlig i : Sven Skjenneberg.   The Nordic Centre of Excellence (NCoE) Tundra calls grazing a bulwark against “shrubification”, which proceeds as warmer temperatures favor woody plants. “By preventing the invasion of trees, tall shrubs and forbs, reindeer maintain the openness of Author: Rose Marshall. Assessment of range resources is essential in range management. Since reindeer nutritional status is highly attuned to changes in forage plant availability and quality throughout the growing season, a onetime estimate of biomass production for the summer season has limited usefulness.

Early Stand Management 9 Grazing Management 9 Overgrazing 10 Loamy soils provide the best medium for forage plant establishment; they have a balance of sand, silt, and clay particles. I recommend the book to anyone planting food plots in the North. Finally, I also co-edited and co-authored the book Quality Food Plots, Your guide to better deer and better deer hunting with Lindsay Thomas and Karl Miller. All three books are available at or   There are a few wild plants that are usually reliable, even in the harshest conditions. If you are in a more moderate or a warmer zone, your options are expanded, sometimes by a lot! Here I will go over more than 30 edible and medicinal trees, nuts, berries, leaves, roots, lichens, mushrooms, and seaweed to forage in winter.

It also will be available for very early spring grazing, starting early April many years. By mid-May it often starts losing palatability rapidly as plants try to form seed stalks. Triticale will be ready for spring grazing 2 to 3 weeks later than rye in spring but will continue to provide good forage . Canada wildrye is often an early successional component of prairie mixtures. Livestock: Canada wildrye provides good forage quality during the early part of the grazing season but is generally considered an inferior forage after it matures. It is fairly palatable to most livestock, and is rated good in energy value but poor in protein value.   I still plant oats today, and I appreciate the "other cereal grain" for it's value as a quick start light forage for my Food Plot Layering Method, or as a small portion of a 1-time planting teamed with brassicas, peas and other forages. However, Winter Rye is king in book, for not only offering a sure-fire late season green food source, but for.   Winter annuals such as rye and turnips are excellent sources of forage for October and November grazing. In order to produce enough forage for fall grazing, winter annuals should be seeded by September 1. Rye provides excellent late fall and early spring grazing for feeder lambs and gestating and lactating ewes.
