Pasture Rental Rates for Fall-Winter Grazing of Winter Wheat

Winter wheat can be managed to produce a substantial quantity of high quality fall-winter forage. Wheat producers may lease the grazing rights to livestock producers. This system generates income from both forage and grain, but results in a lower expected grain yield than wheat managed to produce only grain. The rental rate in terms of cents per pound of livestock weight gain required to offset the additional costs and lower grain yield depends on the market price of wheat. This study was conducted to determine the minimum pasture rental rate necessary for dual-purpose wheat to breakeven with grain-only wheat.
