Winter peas, in comparison to spring peas, don’t have the spring vigor which don’t make for as good of grazing in a smaller timeframe. Winter peas are more cold tolerant which makes it desirable for producers wishing to have a late fall/winter grazing option. They are a legume, meaning they will fix nitrogen and since their residue breaks down faster the nitrogen is more readily available in comparison to other legumes.
