CRYSTALYX® Hay waste: Get the most out of your harvested forage.

Hay waste: Get the most out of your harvested forage

Snowy weather across many parts of the country has reminded producers that winter is well on its way, which means winter hay feeding will begin shortly, if it hasn’t already.

Feed expenses are the greatest variable cost responsible for influencing producer profitability. On average, these costs account for 40–60 percent of annual cow cost, or the total budget for a cattle operation. When pasture conditions are less than adequate during the winter months, many producers provide their cow herd with large, round bales of hay as the forage source. Unfortunately, this past year included both unseasonably wet and/or dry conditions in various parts of the country, resulting in poor-quality forage and a reduction in the harvested forage yield. With the common trend of a decrease in overall hay production and an increase in hay prices, reducing hay loss during storage and feeding has a great economic impact for many operations.

Safety Message

October 16, 2018

Many trucks dump at PGA locations daily.  If you open the gates or a PGA employee does, it is always easier & safer to open well maintained traps & gates.  Please maintain your equipment & help the unload process run smoothly.  Everyone appreciates your efforts.

Grain Quality Tip

September 7, 2018

Enhancing Soybean Storage Starts With Harvest Moisture

Harvest timing can have a huge impact on soybean shatter losses and storability. Field losses, splits, and cracked seed coats increase as moisture content decreases.

A moisture content of about 13% at harvest is optimal for mitigating mechanical damage.
