We're rolling up October in the hay field.
Even though we haven't had a killing frost yet,
the grass has stopped growing and much of it has already
turned pale green or brown due to the seasonal changes but
it can still be harvested for feeding our beef and dairy cattle.
After rolling up the hay from this field, we will apply
a measured amount of cow manure (what we call nutrient)
to fertilize the field.
Nutrient management plans guide the amount,source,
placement and timing of manure on fields.
Rolling up October is a sustainability win for the
environment and the dairy farmer.
