First Forage Analysis

On July 15, Jeff Semler collected forage samples from the paddock that the goats were grazing.  He collected a mixed sample that was representative of all the plants in the paddock. This included dwarf pearl millet, sunn hemp, and various weeds. He collected a separate sample of marestail, the primary weed in the paddock.

The goats ate the marestail with relish.
