Description

Feeding hay to cattle is expensive. The expense of producing, making and feeding hay accounts for approximately 50% of the cost to produce beef and 30% of the cost to produce milk in the Midwest. By using winter pastures to extend the grazing season, producers can reduce the amount of hay they feed and in doing so substantially reduce input costs.
