Benjamin & Mikayla raise corn, soybeans, wheat, peola (field peas and canola intercrop), sunflowers, tall fescue (turf seed), hay (mostly alfalfa), and rye for cover crop seed. They work to integrate cover crops on almost every acre every year. They interseed covers into corn and sunflowers and trying it on soybeans and plant diverse mixes as much as possible following the principles of soil health.
Benjamin and Mikayla have a cow/calf herd with a small feedlot. They graze most of their cropland and practice rotational grazing on their pasture. They move livestock daily in summer and every 2-3 days in winter. Bale graze, complex covers, swath grazing, corn stalks (with interseeded covers), grazing standing corn, and stockpiled grazing are things they’re doing and trying to extend their grazing season.
