Our Grassland

 

We have 32 acres left in CRP grassland.  It is planted in switchgrass.  This grass reaches six to seven feet in heighth at the end of the growing season.

Unfortunately, this field did not qualify for the "new" CRP guidelines and will be removed this fall.  Sorry pheasants.

Here are a few pictures.
