Forage and Hay Options

forage and hay
Forage / hay quality and availability is tight this year. Many operations are facing tough decisions on acquiring feed options. If you are faced with using lower quality forage or hay, this post will help in identifying the quality and storage options for fall and winter.
The quality of the hay will vary greatly, depending on the time of year, maturity and weather conditions when the hay was made in addition to how it is stored. While we encourage forage testing as the only real way of knowing the feed value of your hay, very few farmers are following through with this practice.

This week is our local county fair. It is always a highlight of the year for me personally to see so many young people proudly displaying their months of hard work in an agriculture project. But it is also an excellent opportunity for all of us in agriculture to share our story with the public.
