Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch…

By Rayford Pullen

Here we are in the month when we normally transition from fall to the beginning of winter and with that change, we can add winter feeding to our list of chores.

The normal first freeze in our neck of the woods usually occurs around Nov. 15, and with that all perennial grass growth ceases, but the value of our grass will hang on for a couple of weeks or so. As we try to lower our cost of production, we normally don’t begin our winter protein supplementation for a couple of weeks until after the first freeze, and the later that first freeze, the later in the year we begin feeding.
