Hay supplies are tight for some livestock producers living in the 2005 summer drought areas. And, as normal, supplies of "dairy quality" hay and the "high quality" end of the hay used by the horse industry are likely below the level of need. As the winter hay and silage feeding season approaches, you still have time to set some feeding strategies. The nutritional needs of cattle, sheep, and horses can change greatly over the course of the winter feeding season.
