ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the use of dual-purpose crop canola in the United States. The first growth is used for fall grazing, then the crop is harvested for oilseed the following summer. Canola grazing works similarly to grazing wheat or rye, but the relative feed value of canola is almost twice as high as those other two crops. Canola's higher in TDN and energy and can yield up to 3 tons of dry matter/acre, though 2 tons/acre are more common. Thus canola shows a lot of potential as a grazing crop.
