$14.99 Regular price $18.00

There are times when supplementing pastures - not replacing them - with hay, silage or haylage justifies the beneficial use of stored forages.  This is different from cow-calf production.  Finishing cattle to the High Select/Low Choice grade on forages alone is not natural and requires unnaturally good forages and management.

The Use of Stored Forages with Stocker and Grass-Finished Cattle explains factors to help you determine when and how to feed stored forages.

  • How stored forages can bridge seasonal flat spots;
  • Details for various methods for stacking and feeding hay bales;
  • How to double an animal's voluntary intake of feed;
  • When to supplement during Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring;
  • How to feed during extended periods of mud or precipitation.
