What's new at the farm
Like most folks, we are dealing with high feed costs here in the Midwest. But, we are taking a proactive approach to lessen that impact on our operations by:
- no till drilling 2-3 lbs per acre forage turnips into wheat/oat stubble for early winter lambing ewes- our experience is they milk heavier. Turn into after October 15 th ..will graze into December
- put whole home raised oats into ration for growing yearlings. 6 parts Oats, 2 parts Soy-Hulls ($80/Ton), 1 part Corn Screenings (heavy) plus a good mineral free choice
- no till trefoil in early August into wheat stubble( 8-10 lbs), frost seed Alsike clover 3-4 lbs following spring, for hay or pasture. Stands last, low bloat risk.
Hope this finds you, your family and your flock well.
