You Can Stretch Your Hay Supplies as You Feed Your Cattle This Winter

You Can Stretch Your Hay Supplies as You Feed Your Cattle This Winter


Hay in Oklahoma and Texas continues to be a scarce commodity- and prices of hay rolling in on semis from the north are extremely high. Dave Lalman, Oklahoma State University Extension Beef Cattle Specialist, says there are some relatively simple ideas that ranchers can put into place that will help stretch each large square or round bale that you may open up to feed.


On today's Beef Buzz, Dr. Lalman says one of the best ways to stop wasting hay as you put it in front of your cattle is to purchase a feeder with a floor in it to hold your large round bales. Savings of hay can easily be twenty percent or more. Another way to stetch you limited hay supplies is to simply feed a little less each day and force the cattle to clean up what you put down for them each day.


The Beef Buzz is a regular feature heard on radio stations around the region on the Radio Oklahoma Network- but is also a regular audio feature found on this website as well. Click on the listen bar below for today's show- and check out our archives for older Beef Buzz shows covering the gamut of the beef cattle industry today.
