Plant annual ryegrass seed at 30 pounds per acre if drilling or 35 pounds per acre if broadcasting the seed. Small grains can be planted at seeding rates of 90–120 pounds per acre.
Winter wheat or winter rye is more beneficial for deer.

This year, I might add wheat just for fun. We’ve never had an issue with attractiveness, but we intensively fertilize everything to compete with the surrounding crops, including many acres of winter wheat.
- Last edited: 31 July 2018 I just suggested researching pasture uses because it is the primary function of a wheat patch.
- There is also a great deal of information on how to cultivate it for grain production, although it is largely irrelevant.
- However, this land is utilized as winter cow pasture to decrease hay consumption.
We remove the cattle in the spring to allow them to graze and generate grain, which is stored for the next winter. Utilizing Tapatalk on my SM-N960U Here is a deer food plan. Wheat without awns, clovers, brassicas, etc. Grazed during the winter, then left alone for a time, and finally shorn while in the doughy stage.
Utilizing Tapatalk on my SM-N960U The same plot from the day I planted beans until the present day. Once the bean’s leaves turn yellow, I will replant the field with wheat, clovers, brassicas, etc. Indeed, kilometers of golden wheat undulating in the breeze is a breathtaking sight. Utilizing Tapatalk on my SM-N960U Winter wheat is by far the superior crop for deer.
Rye is nice, but not as good as wheat. One sign is that deer will not eat rye heads but will DESTROY wheat once it has produced seed.
