  • Tips to optimize your stockpiled grass for cows-calves

    Feed, and specifically winter feeding, is the single highest expense in cow-calf production systems. In many cases it can make up more than 50 percent of the total cow-calf budget.

    Traditionally, hay is the main feed that is used during the winter months. Producing hay that is high enough in forage quality to meet the nutritional needs of lactating brood cows can be difficult. Feeding that hay during the cold, wet and muddy winter months can also be a challenge, especially if you work off the farm since it is dark when you leave and dark when you get home.
