This week we cut silage and put up a pile at the Four Sisters Farm.
The job takes at least three on crew – one to cut, one to haul and one to pack.
So naturally, we needed six sandwiches.
When I delivered the sandwiches, I drove by three other family farms that were also cutting silage. It is an exciting time around Kingsbury County!
It makes a nutritional feed for beef cattle, but it needs to be mixed with a few other ingredients.
Such as: hay, supplemental minerals and a protein source like alfalfa or “wet cake”.
We work closely with a beef cattle nutritionist to formulate a diet that will meet all of the nutritional needs of the cattle.
Sometimes, I wish a nutritionist would show up and do that for me!
