Fertilizer

There are different ways to fertilize the ground you grow your crops on.  Our crop is hay.  We grow it in the summer so we have something to feed the cattle in the winter.  When the cows come home from their summer pasture in the fall they are left to roam and graze in the already harvested meadows, but when the snow comes it gets to be pretty tough picking.  So we feed them the hay we cut during the previous summer.

In order to make the most of the feeding we feed the cattle their hay on new ground every day.  As you know, what goes in must come out and what comes out is good fertilizer.  By feeding the cattle their hay back onto the ground where we harvested it, we provide reseeding and nutrients for the next year.  The cattle are happier too when their feed is placed in a new spot every day because just like you and I, cattle like to eat from a clean plate.
