Wade Dooley - Managing Cover Crops with Cows

Wade Dooley, Albion IA, shares his family's practical experience of working a 1,200+ acre crop and cattle operation in the vicinity of the Iowa river. Mr. Dooley talks about their grazing and crop rotation tactics, highlighting the "gifts" that Mother Nature frequently gives and what they do to work through them.

One of his key stories is turning a flooded corn field into an oat and turnip field and being able to feed 80 cattle for three weeks on 65 acres on that field. Wade says with cover crops, timing is everything.
