(WFRV) – It is a good time of year for farmers to get some extra feed for animals, harvesting marsh or canary grass.

It is often used on fields in low-lying areas on farms. Most years, farmers get one cutting before the area becomes too wet. However, with the dry weather, some are harvesting a second crop of the grass.

In this segment of Life on the Farm, we chat with a custom operator about how he uses these grasses in his ration for animals.

Life on the Farm is a partnership with Fox Valley Technical College.
