Naked Oats Seed - Naked Oats are a great source of fall and winter forage for cattle, horses, goats, sheep and food plots for deer. Oats are a nutritious and palatable forage used for cattle feed stock, hay production, horses and dairy milk production.
Naked Oats History:
Naked oats (Avena nuda) are a cereal grain first grown in central Asia around 100 B.C. Currently, they are grown world-wide because they are the most nutritionally packed cereal grain available on the market.
Oats planted for cattle forage are commonly planted with winter rye grain, winter rye grass and rape, turnip, radish or kale.
Food Plots for Deer
Oats planted in food plots for deer and other wildlife can be planted with winter legumes such as clover, winter peas and brassicas such as Radish, Rape, Turnip or Kale.
Naked Oats are great for hay production and should be planted in the early fall for hay. When planting Oats for hay plant 100 lbs. of seed per acre. Fertilizing will depend on the soil nutrients but typical applications are 350-500 lbs. per acre. Oats can produce as many as 100 square bales per acre.
Oats are most successful when planted on well prepared soils with a pH of 5.5 or greater.
