We have fed insane amounts of hay this year. Between a few weeks of subzero followed by wind (sometimes both ) and deep snow I am thankful for all the carry over hay from last year.
So far this winter I've fed as much hay as we did during all last winter. Granted, last year was extremely mild.
One bunch of cows are on a part of the place with no trees or brushlines for cover. I fed double ration of 22 3x3 bales to 200 head of cows thinking they'd have some left. Slicked every stick of it up
