Chicory

Chicory is a perennial herb for grazing with protein levels of 18% – 22%. Because of its very high energy, Chicory boosts milk production and is fantastic for fattening lambs and steers. University trials indicate an average daily gain on lambs of 0.66 pounds. It’s an excellent feed as well for goats and wildlife. Chicory can be a very valuable addition to most farms if managed properly.  However, it really boosts first year production in new seedings of dryland pastures. It’s very high in mineral content, very high in digestibility, low in fiber and high in protein. Chicory gets blue flowers at maturity.

Management

For best persistance, Chicory needs a 25 day rest period between grazings. Chicory is not very persistent if it does not get a 25 day rest period between grazings.

Establishment

Drill 1/2 to 3/4 inch deep at 8-12 lbs/A or broadcast or aerial seed into standing corn at the higher rate from early September to November. Use 1-8 lbs/A in mixes. It can be used in a wide range of soil types and can be planted mono culture.
