Here is a picture of a standing grain sorghum food plot in McPherson County after the Christmas ice storm. Ice is thick enough that the sun is having a hard time melting it. Can cattle still graze in corn stalks after this much ice?

Similar story around Selby. I fed for two days. Turned into fresh cornstarch and Sudan mix this morning. Looks like they are doing OK. We will see what the morning brings. There will certainly be less forage harvested at this point.

Uffdaa......that is a lot of ice. I haven't experienced that much ice before. We have grazed after ice storms with no problems. I would think once the cattle walk around in there, most of the ice would break off. They should then be able to graze some of it, but the amount of available forage will be less.
