The farmer I am buying hay from is now selling round baled corn stalks. I am considering feeding them to my longhorns along with hay and maybe reduce my hay usage. The cornstalks are much cheaper than hay. I checked with a local man that raises beef a few years ago. He said you have to be careful about the corn stalks. If the aren't made correctly they can make your cattle sick. Any input would be appreciated. What season of the year do they bale corn stalks? This farmer is just now baling the stalks. I would of thought you would make the bales right after the harvest.
