A note from our Nutrition Department:
As cattle begin to head out to pasture the JFM nutrition team reminds you of the importance of having pasture minerals available. Pasture minerals can help achieve optimal growth, maintenance and reproductive performance from pastured cattle.
Additionally, as forage harvest begins, the JFM nutrition department encourages you to submit hay/haylage samples for lab analysis. Lab analysis provides the JFM nutrition team valuable information about your feed and allows them to ensure your rations are balanced accurately.
Frequent dry matter checks on haylage and corn silage is also key to ensure cattle are receiving the correct amount of feed. Dry matters can change frequently, even when the feed is coming out of the same bunk or field. The JFM beef team is happy to help with dry matter testing, collecting forage samples for analysis and providing recommendations on pasture minerals!
