Maybe now is the time to rethink your hay ring process?

Distributing manure throughout your pastures by windrow feeding versus bale ring feeding not only improves your pasture growth but it eliminates the need for manually spreading manure and re-seeding damaged pastures. Windrow feeding also allows you to limit feed and give everyone equal access to good feed in a healthy environment. This means that you can reduce your feed bill and contribute to a more uniform herd condition while keeping a safe environment for your younger stock. Studies prove that feeding hay in a narrow windrow instead of a round bale feeder can reduce wastage from nearly 40% down to just 2-3%!

Listen to our FGFG Podcast – James Doran 

James talks about how he and his wife took over his family Angus operation after a number of years working on Wall Street, and how it’s sometimes hard, but the opportunity to walk around the farm and be in nature gives him the chance to decompress. He has some strong opinions about the big four packers, and about feedlot cattle raising in general, but also thinks that the ‘fake meat’ creators aren’t addressing how they’re replenishing the soil. He’s a proud user of Hustler Equipment as well, and talks about some of his favorite product features and benefits.
