Press Releases & Seminars For Handling Drought Conditions
Forage and livestock management strategies

Drought Considerations

Be cautious when turning livestock into pastures with certain warm season grasses as toxic nitrate and prussic acid can accumulate in drought situations. Any plant with the ability to grow quickly can develop buildup of nitrate and prussic acid, but some forages present a bigger threat than others.

The sorghum family – including sorghum-Sudan hybrids, forage sorghum, Sudan grass and Johnson grass; and corn – can develop the most buildup of nitrates and prussic acid. “When there’s a drought, warm-season annuals quit growing but still take up nitrogen from the soil and accumulate nitrates and prussic acid,” Craig Roberts, state forage specialist with University of Missouri Extension said. “Once the drought ends those plants start to grow again and look green and lush, but they’ll be full of toxins.”

------------ Continued -------------

Short forage supplies require producers to make tough decisions

COLUMBIA, Mo. – Dry weather and short pastures have reduced forage supplies, prompting livestock producers to ponder “could have, would have, should have” scenarios, says University of Missouri Extension livestock specialist Eric Meusch.

Producers should try to match their herd needs to anticipated forage supplies, Meusch says. This requires planning before a drought. Many factors will be out of your control if you wait until drought actually hits.

During drought, producers have control over some factors but not others. It is important to manage controllable areas to meet animal needs and be profitable. Good grazing systems give producers flexibility to decide when and where livestock grazes, he says.

Fencing and proximity of available water are important factors. Properly managed systems let producers, rather than the cows, control grazing heights of pastures, rest periods and rationing of grasses.

Corn silage as a forage

COLUMBIA, Mo. – An emergency feeding situation is shaping up for Missouri’s beef producers because of the drought. University of Missouri Extension recently hosted University of Wisconsin agronomist Joe Lauer on the MU Extension Forage and Livestock Hour to discuss his research on corn silage as a forage.

Lauer talked about what makes good forage: high yield, energy (digestibility), intake potential (low fiber) and protein. Also, proper moisture at harvest for storage is key.

The ultimate test is animal performance. In dairy cattle, the MILK2006 index is the best predictor for performance (Schwab-Shaver equation), he said.

Nitrate, Prussic acid poisoning follow drought

MU Extension gives tips to avoid poisoning in livestock.
Source: Jamie Gundel, 417-778-7490

COLUMBIA, Mo. – Nitrates and prussic acid build up in forages to levels dangerous to livestock
during drought.

Livestock face severe illness and even death after eating affected forages, says University of
Missouri Extension agronomist Jamie Gundel. Nitrates tend to concentrate in the bottom third of the plant. It shows in the plant’s stem and stalks more than leaves, Gundel says.

Plants most susceptible to nitrate buildup include sorghum, Sudan grass, sorghum-Sudan grass hybrids, corn, millet and perennial grasses. Some weeds can also accumulate nitrates, including curly dock, jimsonweed, Johnson grass, kochia, lambsquarter, nightshades, pigweed, Canada thistle and smartweed.
