You may be surprised how well they do on it.
Hello JackieGG
Probably have to add some source of supplemental protein to that ration to help feed the bugs in the rumen to digest the fibre in the straw.

Hay shortage over? Lots of stacks around here.

Probably going to depend on the winter?

I think the poster just made a mental mistake in writing the acronym. Like R-is short for Rela, T-is short for tive, and V for Value.

Perfectly understandable it's just like ID.
I- is short or I, and D- is short for dentification.

If anyone needs some barley greenfeed or some good quality alfalfa, we will be having a hay auction on nov. 16
The foodgrains bank is also selling alfalfa bales earlier the same day.

Gerbrandt & Canadian Food Grain Bank Hay Auction - Waldeck, SK.

Chop it when the grain is cheesy, wholecrop is a fantastic feed!
