Balancing The Ranch For Protein And Energy with Forages

Mar 06, 2014

By Denny Bauer

Is it possible to balance a ranch's protein and energy requirements for the cow herd with forages alone? The answer is yes!

Annual cool and warm season forages as well as perennial cool season grasses when harvested at the right growth stage can produce dry roughages that contain greater than 10% crude protein and produce TDN values of over 60%. Forages that contain such levels of crude protein and TDN will meet a cow's nutrient requirements for protein and energy without supplementation.

In this webinar Dennis Bauer highlights how to harvest high quality forages and meet cow nutrient requirements.
