Rolling Up October

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.
