Tag: Hay & Forage
Think about what it takes for your hay crop to become a high-value feed source for your livestock or hay-buying customers: good timing, attention to detail and a little bit of luck. If you prepare, plan ahead and balance your goals against weather realities, your skills and know-how will leave less to chance. (more…)
Forages are valuable, whether you put up high-quality dairy hay, horse hay or grass hay to keep those high-value beef cows in condition. A timely harvest is good for your livestock, your hay-buying customers and your bottom line.
Whether buying or selling, you know how valuable forages are these days. And it’s expected to stay that way. But no matter what the markets do, putting up the highest-quality hay remains the goal. New products and technology in the Case IH hay and forage lineup can help.
Two of agriculture’s most prestigious events — World Ag Expo and the National Farm Machinery Show — are so big, it’s amazing one week can contain them. But that’s exactly what will happen in Tulare, California, and Louisville, Kentucky, respectively. Case IH will be at both, and we would enjoy the opportunity to meet you there.
When it comes to events, the annual Cattle Industry Convention has “work hard, play hard” down pat. It’s also earned its reputation as a place to learn, make and renew acquaintances, and set the course for success. You can accomplish all that and more simply by connecting with Case IH at Booth 7045 next week in San Antonio.
Now that we’re well into the hay-feeding and hay-marketing seasons, you likely have a good idea about how the 2014 hay crop measures up. That makes this an excellent time to consider implementing steps that can help improve this year’s haying season.
Optimism and livestock production go together like cheese and burgers. Caring for animals, watching them grow, feeding the world — what’s not to be optimistic about? With a positive outlook for 2015, there is good reason to prepare for a productive year.
