Wisconsin Beef Producer’s Innovations Extend Winter Grazing

Wisconsin beef producer Justin Seeger shared some of his winter grazing innovations at a recent pasture walk, reports Agri-View. Seeger, who has a full-time hoof-trimming operation, is looking to save labor on his cattle operation. He stretches the winter grazing season by windrowing corn stalks and using portable electric fence to portion the windrows out to his cattle. This year, he’s added dry hay and ground corn-stalk bales to the windrows for more nutrition and volume. Extending the grazing season not only helps keep feed costs low but also helps save farm labor. Seeger calves in April and May.
