Weather may mean forage challenges for US farmers
Some dairy producers have been dealing with haylage shortage since spring
While some dairy producers were not affected by spring weather conditions, others dealt with the issue all summer and continue to be affected. "Regardless of the situation you're in, dairy producers need to be cognizant that their feeding program may be very different than in years past," said Prange. Strategies to deal with the problem of haylage availability include monitoring haylage inventory and working with your nutritionist to make adjustments to the ration.
