Yellow sweetclover is invading native range areas in Utah and Wyoming. With some exceptions it is not invading rangeland in Colorado and is not now considered a noxious weed.

Biennial sweetclover is a legume introduced into the United States from Europe and Asia in the 1700s. It first was considered a weed because of its widespread occurrence along roadsides and in waste areas. During the early years of this century, it was discovered to be valuable forage Vans Suede

drought tolerant legume that is adapted to a wide range of soils. Sweetclover grows best on fertile, well drained, calcareous soils. Biennial sweetclover includes both the yellow flowered and white flowered varieties and strains. The yellow flowered sweetclover is shorter growing, more widely branched, finer stemmed, more drought tolerant, easier to establish and better adapted to drier regions.

Consider all wild sweetclover plants to be high coumarin varieties.

Nothing will control sweetclover totally once established on native range. Broadleaf herbicides, such as 2,4 D, will kill the present years growth, but a new stand establishes from dormant seed in the soil for up to 20 years. However, concentrated grazing during August, September and October can reduce sweetclover plant density. Concentrated grazing reduces root reserves, which increases winter kill. Grazing will not eliminate sweetclover, but it should help keep the stand at an acceptable level.

Growing a certified seed of a low coumarin variety, such as Norgold, can avoid problems associated with feeding moldy sweetclover hay.

Sweetclover generally has not been favored for hay production due to the difficulty of curing the coarse stems. However, hay conditioning equipment now available speeds the curing process. If sweetclover is cut at the proper time and adequately cured, it is comparable to alfalfa in feed value. Sweetclover, especially high coumarin varieties, should be baled drier than other grass and legume hay, preferably at 17 percent to 18 percent moisture or less for small, square bales and 13 percent to 14 percent for large bales because of the presence of coumarin in the forage. Sweetclover hay stored too wet will mold and may cause sweetclover bleeding disease when fed as the only roughage to livestock.

is bitter tasting to livestock due to the presence of coumarin. When livestock chew sweetclover, free coumarin is released, producing an undesirable taste that reduces its palatability. When grazing sweetclover pasture, dont make other forage available for grazing. Livestock graze sweetclover forage sparingly when first turned onto pasture because of the bitter taste, but the animals soon become accustomed to the taste and graze without difficulty.

Sweetclover should be considered only as a backup or temporary pasture for livestock. Grazing may begin on second year sweetclover when new growth is 6 to 8 inches tall. During May and June, when the plant is making rapid growth, the stocking rate should be heavy enough to prevent the plant from becoming too coarse and unpalatable. Maintain a minimum stubble height of about 6 inches to promote regrowth forage.

Sweetclover OK for forage

Ive received several calls this year about using yellow sweetclover for livestock feed. It appears that last years wet weather and now this years weather have provided a perfect opportunity for this plant to take over roadsides and some native ranges.

Bloat may be a problem when grazing immature sweetclover. Bloat occurs less frequently when grazing sweetclover, compared with alfalfa. Take certain precautions Vans Purple Suede because the danger of bloat always is present. Precautionary measures to reduce the potential bloat hazard include: 1) Place livestock on pasture with a fill of dry feed, 2) provide dry feed for animals at all times while on pasture not used previously, and 3) provide an adequate supply of water and salt.
