Stocking Questions

May 30, 2011

Many producers are stocking or considering stocking at this point.

Be sure to check out the newsletter at:

The newsletter provides information on forage crops as well as recommendations for stocking as we make preparations and plans for the next season.

I have not seen many harvesting, but this warm (or rather hot) weather can be detrimental to crawfish. If ponds are still flooded, make sure to monitor water quality closely because at these temperatures, it does not take long or water to lose quality. The best times to check oxygen levels is in the morning (also this is the best time to aerate).
