    Feeding hay

    It could be done how to make the drag track right would be the difficult part. To reduce drag he would want to be moving the bale on some raised rails and some how the drag would be incorporated to slid along these rails. I would think the drag would need to be pulled from two points with cable...

    Feeding hay

    Dave check this homemade feeder out, stumbled across this sometime back and lucked into finding it again. It's close to what you have in mind and I could see it being adapted in several ways.

    I want to learn more about nutrition

    I've been feeding it every second day, last winter I fed 3lbs a head a feeding this way. This winter I'm not feeding as much because I have better hay. I did find it takes them longer to eat the 38% cubes then the 20% cubes and the cows would come to where I was putting hay out before...

    Critique this breed mix

    added milk takes more energy or feed, however you want to look at it. Jersey is hard to cover up.

    I want to learn more about nutrition

    Off the top of my head it will take 3 to 5 lbs a day of that 30% tub or similar product to balance your hay.

    Down cow up

    Stress of being handled might have wore her down but would have expected a faster recovery if that was the case. She did have you trained to feed her twice a day and may have just been taking advantage of you.

    New Pasture Lease

    I thought this was an old post at first. It seems like I've seen it before. Most of what your concerned about the fences and cedar trees will come out of your pocket either directly or indirectly through lower lease payments. What it comes down to is do you really want to do business with...

    Any zero till/regenerative ag experts?

    You can't plant ss until June and I'm wondering how late into August I can plant ss. Adding some rye and oats along with hairy vetch and Austrian winter peas for grazing cows after the sorghum freezes. Keeping something growing through the winterAnd building some nitrogen. I think I could do...

    Any zero till/regenerative ag experts?

    I don't have a clue about notilling with a hoe drill. I find I have to be on top of things when notill planting in the warmer months of spring and summer. Moisture just seems to soak away faster.

    If you can get the feed secured and things cleaned up the mice will thin themselves quickly.
