Feed hay wisely this winter by planning ahead to use selected bales for specific animals, advises Bruce Anderson, professor of agronomy at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. If you test all baled hay for quality, and then organize and store it according to its level of quality, it will be easier for feeders to deliver the right quality of hay to the right group of animals. And targeting higher-quality hay for animals with the highest nutrient needs can help reduce the cost of added protein and energy supplements.
