Haybales in field

Sustainable livestock systems in Appalachia require the stockpiling of good-quality feed for winter-feeding. AFSRC scientists are studying forage/livestock system management that might leas to longer grazing seasons and reduce the need for stockpiled feed. Research into production and storage of winter feed, such as these round hay bales, are also aimed at helping livestock overwinter with good health and having them in the best possible condition when the spring grazing season begins.
