Had two fields (both corn stubble - intended to plant oats for grain and seed a hay mix) that didn't get planted this spring, due to being so wet and then needing to get going on haying. It's finally drying out, and I have one field nearly ready to plant. Had been figuring on simply direct seeding to the hay mix, but since we have a lot of hay, but not much quality, I'm wondering if planting 1 1/2 - 2 bu. of oats per acre for forage might be a good idea. I've made h.m. bales and green chopped oats before, but that was April/May planted. I have about 30 bu. of seed oats on hand, but would it pay to plant them this late? (n/w WI)

Ended up pulling the Vibrashank over the field twice, to finish smoothing out the ruts from chopping last fall. Got done about chore time, but a h.s. kid who works for me occasionally had asked if I had anything for him to do. So while I milked, he pulled the grain drill and cultipacker. Got done maybe 1/2 an hour before it started raining. Nice to finally have that field planted. I'll have to post back in 6-8 weeks when I know how everything turns out.
