Forage Soybeans

My son came up with these round up ready forage beens for deer and cattle
We got a blend with a few different beens that keep up with the deer grazing. and reach five foot in hight , We have a good stand growing.
And we finely got a 2 1/2 " rain today to bring them on
I am looking forward to the new crop

Green or brown the deer are going to browse them
we have the option to disk the beens back in early fall to make tender new beens until the first hard frost
We have plenty of beens on the farm that will go in after the wheats cut
