Feeding Cattle: Work in Progress

From drought to frost to hail, Western Canada ranchers have faced some significant challenges already this year. In a “normal” year, we gerenally only encounter one of these stresses as an issue, but this year producers have had to watch their pastures, hay land and crops alike undergo multiple stresses that have left some wondering what to do.
With most crops and pastures getting off to a very slow start due to cold temperatures and lack of moisture, there were cattle producers feeding late into the season. Now that crops are behind as well, it is looking like not all cereal crops will go through a combine, which may be an opportunity for cattle producers to procure some feed acres for silage or swath grazing.
