New Braunfels Feed & Supply is a proud supplier of Bob Oats Seed. Bob 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.
Hay Production: 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.
Cattle Forage 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.
Soil Preparation: Bob Oats are most successful when planted on well prepared soils with a pH of 5.5 or greater.
