Mowing ahead of herd

Post by simon.miller » Sun Nov 19, 2017 8:08 pm

When mowing a pasture ahead of grazing, how much extra DM do you expect the cows to take in?

If you ate today, thank a farmer.

If your cows are getting sufficient feed during normal grazing, then they will probably not eat more feed just because it has been mown. It will prevent them from being selective with the feed though because what they would normally have grazed around is now mixed in with the good grass and they have to eat it.
