Hay Quality; What a difference a year makes, or does it?
Ohio Beef Cattle Letter
We can certainly say this past year has had its challenges. However, quality of forages made in 2020 was much better for most compared to the previous two years. Weather conditions were more favorable especially for first cutting. The late frost in May set our forages back and for many first cutting forage yields were extremely low. Second, third and four cuttings were better, but overall hay supplies are tight again for some.
