Dry weather has created a shortage of pasture and hay for many Iowa livestock producers. However, cornstalks are an abundant source of winter feed for beef cows in Iowa. When cornstalks are supplemented with protein, vitamins, and minerals, they can supply the nutritional needs of cows that are in moderately good body condition during fall and early winter.
