  • Fall is the right time to assess winter hay supply

    The arrival of fall is an important time for livestock producers to assess their winter hay supplies. Kentucky forage and livestock producers made a lot of hay this September, and for much of the state, hay supplies should be adequate for winter feeding. However, in areas of Western Kentucky that experienced a longer, more extensive drought, some producers may have supply issues.
