Grazing Wheat

This cattle producer is using an old practice not often seen any more.  He sowed wheat as soon as his corn got harvested and is now grazing his feeder cattle on wheat about a foot tall.  He already has one area he grazed down to 3 inches.  It can be grazed lightly again when it breaks dormancy.  A crop of wheat will be harvested and maybe double crop soybeans will be planted.
