If you are selling in Oct., you don't have to worry about wintering. If you are thinking of holding them over, there is a difference if you are in southern Kansas or northern Kansas of how cold it gets. Either location, a propane heater in the water tank should be sufficient. I give them free choice Brome or prairie hay and 5 to 10 lbs of grain (or corn gluten) daily. Alfalfa hay would require less grain, prairie hay or brome needs more grain. It takes a lot of energy for them to keep warm when the temp is down to 0 and the wind is blowing snow.New to cattle. Have had 7 head since April, selling in oct.
Can someone tell me BASICS on wintering them.?
I kansas. Have propane heated waters and a lot of hay.
When to buy, sell etc. I know it's a vague question just need a little input.
Thanks in advance!
