Buck Forage Oats

Buck Forage Oats

Oats have long been a food-plot standard for whitetail managers, but Buck Forage Oats raised the bar by developing a cultivar that was more palatable, digestible and resistant to cold weather. Planted properly, Buck Forage can survive below-freezing temperatures and still deliver tons of forage, a real help in getting deer through harsh winters.

Buck Forage is working with the LSU Agricultural Center (photo atop page 52) and the Institute for White-tailed Management and Research at Stephen F. Austin State University to produce a new forage oat that will pack more protein and be even more resistant to cold weather. Currently in a seed expansion program, it should be available in the summer of 2011. The company also has Buck Forage Chicory for perennial plantings.
