Cows Prefer Grazing Stockpile to Eating Hay

On a winter day, -3 degrees and so cold that he was having trouble videoing, Greg Judy found that the hay he’d kindly brought his cows to help them out wasn’t what they wanted at all. Instead of eating it they walked over it to the stockpile pasture in front of them. In this 3:46 minute video he shows you his cattle, snow on their backs, heading to work. It’s a testament to Greg’s efforts to make sure he has cows that fit his environment and his grazing management, and to the work he did ensuring he had good stockpile for his cattle through the winter.

    Let nature lead you. Let a cow be a cow. She knows best. Just set up the proper grazing management and get out of her way.
