Winter Hay

Fall is here and we're transitioning the cows to their winter diet. During the winter we like to feed the cows all the prairie hay they want. We also supplement their diets with alfalfa and a little bit of ground milo. I'm happy to say that our alfalfa supplier has NOT jumped on the GMO band wagon. Alfalfa is a crucial component to producing lots of sweet milk when there is no fresh grass. During the grazing season we can eliminate feeding grain. In the winter a little bit of grain is necessary so the cows can maintain a healthy body weight.
