Mowing Triticale on Singing Horse Ranch

by Lynn R. Miller of Singing Horse Ranch

This summer, Kristi Gilman-Miller (my beautiful and talented wife) took half a hundred photos of partner Ed Joseph and I (with his two teams) using McCormick-Deering #9 mowers to cut down Triticale grass mix hay. The crop would have been much better if we hadn’t been visited night-time by as many as 300 Elk looking for water and green feed. We planted in seven acre lands a quarter of a mile wide as we were recording variables in plantings for our research into the best future crop rotations. We were very impressed by the Triticale, a cross between Rye and Wheat, which makes a grain hay the cattle and horses love.
