Do you plant winter rye in the winter and millet in the summer? Those will both help with forage for the animals. I used to use a lot of millet - both brown top and silver when I raised horses years ago but apparently so does everyone else now becuase it has gotten crazy expensive. I still may put in a patch just to start for my own seed this year.

You might want to try adding some seed mixes designed for pastures to your acreage. Peaceful Valley has several different mixes.
Another thing you might want to try is an intensive paddock rotation system. It works for a lot of people, but does require a lot of fencing.
It's nice to "meet" another Alabamian!
