This is a fantastic cover crop, and scientifically proven to be one of the easiest and best foods for healthy cattle weight gain!

Oats are an annual cover crop for medium wet to dry soils. Use for spring or summer seedings. Do not use Oats with fall or dormant seedings; seeds and seedlings do not overwinter. Use 128,000
seeds per acre if seeding with native seed May - mid-July (over seeding).

Tortoise and lizard enthusiasts, check out the Herpetology Store within our eBay Store for this and other forage seeds!

A tall annual cereal, widely grown as a fodder in temperate and sub-tropical countries, also does well in the high-altitude tropics. Oats are only known as a cultigen, of uncertain origin, but were known to Lake Dwellers of Europe. It is now cultivated throughout the temperate zones of the Old and New Worlds as a summer crop and in the sub-tropics as a cool-season crop (mainly as forage); they are also a good forage in the high altitude tropics. Oats are believed to be derived chiefly from two species, wild oat (A. fatua L.) and wild red oat (A. sterilis L.).

The green plant is a good forage and makes good hay and silage. The straw is a useful roughage. The grain is an important livestock feed and the unhulled, crushed fruit is the usual form in which it is fed to ruminants and horses. Oat forage, hay, straw and grain are renowned horse fodder.

Non-forage uses:

Oats grain is used widely for human consumption. Oats are still widely used for breakfast cereals.

Jargon:

Avena sativa L. An annual grass to 1.5 meters high; culms tufted or solitary, erect or bent at the base, smooth. The leaves are non-auriculate, green and the sheaths rounded on the back; ligules blunt, membranous. The inflorescence is a diffuse panicle with 2 – 3 florets, all bisexual or the distal one or two may be reduced and male or sterile; glumes sub-equal 7 – 11 veined, longer glume 17 – 30 mm; lemmas 7 – 9 veined, either bifid or with a bristle at their apex; lowest lemma 12 – 25 mm. (2n = 42). The rachilla of the cultivated oat does not disarticulate at maturity (that of several weed species do). Its lemmas are rarely awned. The grain is tightly enclosed by the hard lemma and palea.
