Fresh Coastal Bermuda at the beginning of every season for purchase and of course to sustain the quality of our high quality Angus beef products.
We bail hay twice per year from our 50 acre hay field producing approximately 425 bails per year.
Producing high-quality hay should be a goal of each cattle producer. Feeding high-quality hay during periods of reduced pasture growth can result in better weight gain in calves, and better milk production and rebreeding in cows. Feeding high-quality hay can also reduce the level of grain supplementation needed during winter.
Hay is the most commonly stored forage on most Kentucky farms. Since hay is widely utilized, understanding the factors that affect the quality of hay is important, as well as how to produce high quality hay. The ulti-mate test of hay quality is animal performance. Hay must be palatable to be consumed in adequate amounts, and provide ample amounts of energy and other nutrients.
