A Fix for Decreased Forage Production
A decrease in forage production was the first clue something was wrong on Roy Stewart’s family Hereford ranch. The ranch dates back to 1898 and is located near the headwaters of the Elkhorn River, outside of Newport, Nebraska. Consisting of 13,000 acres, the operation includes subirrigated meadows and Sandhill summer pastures. Artesian wells provide plentiful water at year-round temperatures of 54 degrees Fahrenheit.
