WHY YOU NEED TO FEED HAY WHEN YOU HAVE PLENTY OF PAS­TURE

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Feature -

Be aware that there can be a lack of nu­tri­tional ‘bal­ance’ in spring pas­ture. It’s very high in pro­tein, high in energy, low in dry mat­ter and low in fi­bre.

Good qual­ity hay is use­ful to pro­vide fi­bre but only feed what stock can clean up oth­er­wise they use it as bed­ding and waste it, and then won’t eat it be­cause it is dirty.

Never feed silage or hay that has gone mouldy as it’s a health risk to both stock and hu­mans.
