The days are getting shorter quickly, and temperatures are getting cooler every day. It won't be long until snow covers the ground. The fast approach of cold weather means that it is time to prepare your livestock for the winter months.
One of the most important things you can do to keep your horses, cattle, goats and other livestock healthy and strong this winter is to make sure that you have all the hay covers you need to keep all your animal feed safe from the elements. Wet hay and other animal feed can rot. If wet food is fed to animal, it can create illnesses that are difficult and expensive to treat. A small investment in hay covers now can save a lot of money in vet bills down the road.
It is important to keep in mind that this fall and the following spring are likely to be even more wet than usual. The end of 2015 and the beginning of 2016 are marked by El Nino conditions. El Nino occurs every two to seven years. El Nino will lead to wetter conditions in many parts of the country.
For this reason, your current solutions for keeping your animal food out of the rain may not be quite sufficient during an El Nino year. For more information on hay covers please contact us.
