My first post on this board. I'm new to cattle farming. I live in Arkansas and was trying to decide when to feed hay on this particular farm. I owned 25 acres and grazed 13 cows and 1 bull all summer. This fall my neighbor let me lease their 40 acres so they have been running on both December. The 40 acres were grazed this summer by another farmer. So there is 65 acres total. I don't want to feed hay here if at all possible because my hay and tractor are at another farm and I getting low. I thought about supplementing with 38% cubes. How do you tell if the grass isn't enough and need to supplement or to feed hay?
