Cow Hay

We've discovered that several bales scattered around the field are a good idea when the weather is cold & the cattle feel obliged to eat all day long. There is less competition and shoving at the hay bale and everyone has a better chance to eat well. Since most of our livestock are ruminants, feeding them extra hay is like throwing another log on the fire - their stomachs working help keep them warm.
