Multi species with wheat

Steve, I just listed to this podcast. We have a growing number of cattle producers growing wheat for silage in our area which lets them cut it in early June and still plant a full season soybean or corn silage crop afterwards. With that said, is there a legume that would either reduce inputs, improve silage quality or both that you would recommend intercropping with the wheat? We are talking fall planted wheat in Northwest Ohio. Thanks

insight, education and motivation for no-till farming. I love the sharing of ideas and real life experience from both the farmers and facilitators, your podcast has kept me on a focused direction for a no-till operation on my new farm in SW Oregon...keep up the great work!
