I was just wondering what you feed besides hay to keep them in good condition. Down here I feed hay,minerals and protein supplement,but we do not have the snow to contend with. When the high during the day is in the fiftys we think it is cold.
Today it was the high sixtys and cows are browsing all day.so far I have not fed hay just minerals and protein and cows are in good condition I will start haying soon because we got the first freeze at the end of November

I hear about farms that roll out their hay. How do you control waste? Do you not feed until they've cleaned up. Obviously, you have enough open land to never have to feed in the same location. WOW
