hay and stockpile

The lactating cows are getting over to some thin forage stockpiled last summer, when the long delay of the fall rains kept the cool season grasses from filling in as they should, so we carried down a bale to spread on their paddock for supplement and were nearly mobbed — then they girls turned from the sweet hay and left it sitting there until they’d gorged on the stockpiled forage.  Guess it really is better cured standing than as hay.
