Here is a thought for you, I tried it this year with my winter wheat and worked well, I am going to do it again. I broadcast some tillage radish seed into my wheat early this spring and let it go to seed. When I combined my wheat that light seed blew out the back of the combine and now I have some real decent size radish, and not a bad stand.

I did the same thing a few years ago, didn't know the radish would go to seed instead of root when planted early! Had the same in oats, got a lot of seeds in the grain sample - but no problem for feeding. And what blew over grew real nice like you say.
Turnips offer more feed for the cows, the raddish are neat too.
