Pumpkins are easy to grow, and may offer a fall grazing option for sheep. The farmer will turn his ewes into a pumpkin field, conduct a forage analysis, and estimate the dry matter yields per acre based on grazing days. He will compare his results to studies evaluating Brassicas as a fall grazing crop and see if pumpkin field grazing is a good option for sheep operations.
