Winter feed represents one of the largest costs for a livestock production enterprise. One alternative to limit costs resulting from harvest and purchase of hay or feeding of hay is grazing pasture that has been stockpiled for winter. “Allocation of feed resources available from winter pasture is simplified to one degree because the quantity available can be determined at the beginning of the winter grazing period,” says Roger Gates, South Dakota State University Extension rangeland management specialist.
