Lower feed bills by stockpiling, planting small-grains crops.
Texas A&M University
Stockpiling forages and feeding small-grains crops year-round can help cattle producers offset the higher costs of hay. That is the message from Larry Redmon, Extension program leader and associate department head for soil and crop sciences at Texas A&M University in College Station. His recommendations and others by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service specialists were part of walking demonstrations recently at the O.D. Butler Forage Field Day at Camp Cooley Ranch near Franklin, Texas.
