Cows await the hay, they LOVE the fermented round bales!
In the northeast we are blessed with excellent pasture land but in the winter our grass is covered by snow. Fortunately, snow is nitrogen rich and is called the”poor man’s fertilizer” but it does stop grazing. How then, do you keep your cows on grass when your pasture’s are covered by snow? Well, you feed them hay! Which is cut, then dried, grass. My father wraps his hay in plastic so that it ferments and becomes more nutritious and much tastier. My father’s hay is of such good quality that he received best marks form our Cornell cooperative but he knew his hay was good already because our cattle do not loose condition over the winter months which is proof that they are getting what they need.
