It’s no secret that in the Western United States, the Plains and areas of the Midwest are dry. For cattle producers, it feels like a losing battle with these drought conditions not letting up and we are all hoping for some relief as we move in to fall. During periods of drought, or when grasses are naturally becoming more mature, you can use these management tools to help you get through.
Stretch your forage.
CRYSTALYX supplements can increase the digestibility (energy release) of a low-quality forage.
Previous research at Kansas State University has shown a 10% increase in digestibility of low quality (6% CP) forages. This will aid in maintaining, or improving, cow body condition.
