    Soybean hay issues?

    So I’m thinking of adding soybeans to my summer mix that I plant for baleage. I’ve been told not to plant the soybeans as they can cause issues with the cattle, something about messing with the bugs in the rumen. Anyone have any more info on this?

    Made the decision

    To invest in a bale wrapper! It’s hard to make good hay here, and this is just one step towards my goal of better hay. Should help with my production too.

    Moisture in round bales?

    How much can I get away with and not have total garbage? I have some hay on the ground now that still has a good bit of moisture in the stems (Sorghum Sudan). It’s thin, with small stems and it’s mixed with other grasses some. Rain coming tomorrow evening! It’s only going to be 30-40 bales and...

    Productive cow!

    I’ve posted pics of this cow and her calf from last year. I bought her as a bred heifer a few years ago so it’s nothing I’ve done or bred for. She has maintained a 360 calving interval Thru 4 calves and her calves are good! I’m not sure how her longevity will be, but maybe she’ll keep on putting...

    Optimal weaning weight?

    So what would you guys consider optimal weaning weights on your steers? I know this can vary, but in a normal year what would you expect and at what age? And where would you draw the line for poor production, performance?

    Young bull holding condition.

    Bought this bull back in March. Came out of an outfit in Kansas, and was, I hope, a significant addition to my genetics. He has been on a small group of cows since June 8, in this North Al. heat and humidity. No grain really, just pasture. I think he’s held up well, what say y’all?

    Sorghum Sudan and a bush hog.

    Going to plant several acres of SS next week for hay. Guy that cuts my hay doesn’t have a conditioner or crimper, he just normally cuts, rakes and bales grass hay. I’m worried that I won’t be able to get this stuff dry, and am thinking of cutting with a bush hog before baling. Anybody here got...

    A few young bulls.
