Alternative forages – including sorghum sudan, triticale and rye cover crops – have provided conservation, soil heath, and feed benefits for Tony Brey’s dairy farm in Northeastern WI. Tony is an active member of Peninsula Pride Farms and the Door Kewaunee Demonstration Network. Barry Bubolz of the Natural Resource Conservation Service interviews Tony about his experiences with alternative forages, including why they started, manure spreading opportunities, planting logistics, herbicide program, and the many benefits they have seen over the last five years.
