First Hollow Stem

First Hollow Stem

I found wheat that was at the stage of first hollow stem today in southern Grant county. It was Billings wheat planted at the end of September, ungrazed, and in a high fertility enviroment. I had checked it Monday and it was not there and checked it Wednesday evening and there it was big as life and twice as ugly. Hollow stem 2/22/12.

Producers should start considering taking their cattle off of wheat now if they havent already.
