Hay days

Post by Ky hills » Wed Nov 13, 2019 5:59 pm

I unroll hay out to the larger groups and just set a roll out to small ones. I can’t quantify a savings in unrolling cause there is some waste to it too, but I do believe it does save in that they have more area to eat and more cattle get an opportunity to eat. I would have to put out more rolls at time for them to all get around and it seems when I do that they vacuum it all pretty quickly and Trample a lot of it too

An old timer near us used to unroll round bales on a slope, them put a single strand of electric wire down the middle with temporary posts to prevent the cows from trampling and pooping on the hay.
