Some Kentucky farmers have already started feeding hay due to the dry weather.
Because drought conditions vary across the state, the feeding of hay also varies depending on location.
Smart hay conservation will help you make it through the winter. Value the hay crop you have.
To get the most out of your supply, don’t waste it by providing more than your livestock can eat or more than they need. The general rule is between 1.5 percent and 2.5 percent of the animal’s body weight per day in total feed.
