  • Timely tips for cattle producers

    Over the past couple of weeks as we got some dry conditions, a tremendous amount of grass based hay was cut and baled. Remember to get a forage analysis with KDA by contacting them at 1-800-248-2648. 
    With the regular cow herd, keep a good pasture mineral mix available at all times.  Observe the cows and bulls as the breeding season continues!
