With low forage yields, knowing what you have in inventory is critical to plan for how to best manage this feed to get through the coming year. It will affect decisions such as: • Do I have enough feed for the milking herd and young stock? • Do I need to look at fillers for the ration to stretch forage inventories? • Should I cull unproductive animals? • Do I have more youngstock than I need?
