Winter Nutrition

Winter Nutrition

Winter can be hard on cattle, and cattlemen. In a few months northern pastures and fields may well be covered with snow or ice, while those in warmer climates will likely offer significantly fewer nutrients to grazing cattle.
     Somewhere between Thanksgiving and late January, depending on location, most cattlemen will be forced to turn primarily, if not completely, to stored feed stocks to carry their herds through the winter. At the same time the nutritional needs of the animals will likely be increasing, particularly in herds managed for traditional spring calving.
