What does a grass-fed cow eat in the winter? Grass, of course. We are wrapping some delicious high-moisture grass hay to keep them happy and content.
Grass growth usually slows down drastically in the middle of August, so it’s a good time to look for free forage in unusual places. Waterways between fields provide some extra grass. Some step-in pigtail posts and temporary electric fence are all that’s needed keep the cows where they’re supposed to be.
