Winter Feeding Tips

There are several methods often used to feed hay during the winter. These include unrolling the hay, feeding it in some type of hay ring, or feeding it in a hay trailer.

When selecting hay feeding sites try to feed in less productive areas of the pasture that have good drainage.

When unrolling hay, it is important to just unroll what the cattle will consume in a day.

When using hay rings or hay trailers be mindful of muddy areas that can develop around these feeders and the impacts on future forage production and animal welfare.
