rented 50 acres from neighbor decided to plant oats pea mixture instead of corn because I need feed for beefers. I will cut and wrap it.should I just wait till spring and spray with roundup or try quacking this fall?Oats pea mixture will also have seeding with it.

might want to be a little careful with that mix,you cant graze cattle on straight oats normally,and peas can cause severe bloat problems.together i simply do not know.either one is normally planted with a grass for continual grazing. drying it down as hay you might be alright,but even then you most likely would get more food value from a grass ,because their wouldnt be much value in your oat straw. how you handle the field would depend on your location i would think.if your far north for instance would you have enough growing season to spray roundup,wait the prescribed time and still get a good growing season? here the heat would limit me if i sprayed in spring when grass/weeds were growing,waited a month and then planted peas or oats. in other words the heat limits me instead of the cold.

Assuming you are making baleage, that mix would make pretty good feed. Another option that would give you a little more tonnage than oats is spring triticale, it is also a cereal but tonnage wise would yield more like wheat for hay or silage. We planted a spring triticale and cowpea mix and chopped it for silage one year for our dairy herd. Made good dry cow and heifer feed. then followed it with a milo/forage soybean blend which also made good silage. I would just wait and spray it in the spring.
