Hayseed is planted like grain: spread either by hand (in the classic manner of a farm wife scattering chicken feed) or with a hand-cranked broadcaster available at low cost (around here, about $ During very bad years, when floods, fires and other natural or man-made disasters occur, hay can be in short supply. When hay is in short supply, owners may have to resort to alternatives. Of course, the best alternative is good pasture grass, but this isn't always possible.
A shortage of hay may make grain an economical choice for feeding stock cows through the winter according to a North Dakota State University Livestock Specialist. "Grain has the advantage of being easier and cheaper to ship in than hay and is generally available," says John Dhuyvetter at NDSU's North Central Research Extension Center near Minot. During the next 15 years, the hay-making industry would see hay dehydration, a mower-crusher designed to speed up field curing, hay crop silage and the first automatic field string baler.
It's that time of year again when well meaning do-gooders (including hunters and landowners) start killing winter stressed dear by feeding them. Concerned that whitetails are not getting enough to eat, they drive pickups full of corn or apples (or just about anything a deer will eat) into the woods and leaving it for the hungry deer to gobble down. And that's when the deer to begin to starve. Photo: The nutritional value of hay is determined by the forage species and maturity at harvest. If you have always fed second cutting grass hay, this may be the year you need to try something new. Hay, whether cut earlier or later in the season, is dependent on maturity at harvest and species to determine its overall nutritional value.

Butter Making During Hay Feeding Season "" Method By G. WrLSTER, R. STOUT, R. STEIN, J. HAAG, and I. JONES IN RECENT years there has been a considerable increase in the amount of butter made annually in the irrigated alfalfa hay-producing sections of eastern and southern Oregon.
In a total of five and one-half million. Butter making during hay feeding season: "" method Public Deposited. Analytics × Add Cited by: 1. Abstract. Published Decemer Facts and recommendations in this publication may no longer be valid. Please look for up-to-date information in the OSU Extension.
During the feeding season, hay may be fed in one or more areas. Both systems have advantages and disad-vantages. The main disadvantage of feeding in one area is the heavy traffic on sod during wet weather.
This can result in soil compassion and deep ruts throughout the field leading to this Butter making during hay feeding season book. Feeding inFile Size: KB. Hay is the feed produced by drying green forage to a moisture content of 15% or less. It takes about 10 days to make good hay and can be stored for more than 6 months.
It is the commonly used feed stored for feeding cattle, sheep, and goat during the off-season. To make butter, players need the following ingredients, in the specified quantities: x2 It takes 30 minutes to make one unit, and 25 minutes in a fully mastered Dairy.
- Long hay, the traditional, age-old form of herbage, mown, turned and carted is the main subject of this book. - Chopped hay is an option where conditions for drying are good and systems highly mechanized; it is less bulky and better for mechanical handling, but must be conditioned, windrowed and collected with a forage harvester.
- Baled hay. The goal when feeding on pasture is to feed hay in small quantities if not using a feeder or use a feeder if more than a single-day supply is offered in order to make the most of your hay supply.
Location of these feeders and feed sites should be feet away from. Hay is the most commonly used winter feed for beef cattle, but it’s also the most expensive. Each cow requires a daily intake of 40 pounds of round-baled hay, which amounts to $ if pricing.
The good news is that as long as it’s been properly cured, your new hay should be fine to feed. To check that new hay in your loft, simply open a bale and take a look at it, smell it, and feel it. For many parts of the country, this summer will be one to remember for the wet haying season many ranchers had to deal with.
With so many rainy days during the prime of haying season, there’s now plenty of poor quality, moldy hay to contend with. There are many risks to feeding moldy hay, particularly to pregnant and lactating cows. Organic farmer Ann Larkin Hansen clearly and simply explains the five steps to the age-old art of making hay to feed livestock.
This complete guide covers how to suit the hay to your animals and the haying equipment to your farm operation, how to judge the weather and the crop, and precisely how to cut, rake, dry, gather, and store a winter's Reviews: Feeding hay to cattle is expensive.
Recent analyses show that hay costs between $ and $ per pound of dry matter; usually more than double the cost for the same amount of nutrients from pasture. Hay is expensive because:It requires a large investment in equipmentIt requires labor to make and feedMore than 50 percent of it is wasted by either poor storage methods or improper feeding.
3. Tear the bread into chunks and blend in a food processor to make coarse crumbs. Using the same pan you cooked the pine nuts in, heat 1 tablespoon.
Offering hay should ideally be initiated at the point that maximal intake cannot be achieved. If one were to estimate 90% ground coverage for a cool‐season forage and assume to pounds of dry matter per inch of height per acre were present, one could monitor forage height as an indicator of when hay feeding should begin.
Feeding cattle in the winter can be the single, largest expense for producers. University of Kentucky College of Agriculture beef specialist Roy Burris said this year will not be an exception. “Due to high input costs, mainly grain and concentrates, this year will present a challenge to producers,” said Burris, stationed at UK’s Research and Education Center in Princeton.
Fortunately, this past summer was pretty good to us, and quite a bit of excess forage production was available to capture.
However, oftentimes quantity doesn't correlate to quality, which begs the question of how to ensure we properly allocate and utilize hay during the upcoming feeding season regardless of whether the hay is raised or purchased. Nutrition, namely hay and concentrate feed, accounts for about 40 percent of operating costs in a cow-calf production system.
This fact causes some producers to try to cut cost of production by cutting corners in the area of the nutrition program. It doesn't take long to figure out you don't want to skimp on nutrition; however, you can be more efficient if you put together a strategy for. The crust for this is amazing, combining luscious things like sour cream, heavy cream, butter, heaps of sugar and lemon zest.
When it 's rolled out and fitted into a pie tin, it 's filled with sugared plums sprinkled with nutmeg and cinnamon. Then it 's topped with a brown sugar and spice streusel, and baked. “It is highly unlikely however that livestock producers will sample ditch hay, particularly during times of feed shortages and/or reduced income.
In addition, since there is quite a large variability in nutrient content, using average nutrient composition values can oftentimes result in unbalanced diets and reduced cattle performance. Quantity and quality of hay delivered and feeding time for each system was recorded.
Individual bales were weighed and core sampled for subsequent nutrient analysis (Table 1). For years 1 and 2 of the study, an alfalfa-grass mixed-hay was fed. During the last year of the study oat hay was used.
Cattle ranchers cut back on hay costs during winter feeding. Drovers. Janu PM Print Freddie Davis, a rancher-farmer in Royse City, Texas faced a problem common to many.
"I wasn't going to have enough hay to make it through the winter. I was going to have to buy about $6, worth of hay to make up the shortfall.".contrast, feeding hay and silage in a confinement system may take 20 minutes to 1 hour.
Grazing may also decrease your need to make hay which takes an average of 7 hours per acre each season. It also reduces the need to haul manure because most manure is dropped by the cattle on the pasture. What if you have to move a huge herd? A large-scale.
