I don't guess I ever stopped to really think about people feed hay differently - I mean I know it's a given with grain, but never really thought about hay... with that being said how do you feed hay to your animals? Either square bales or round bales (sometimes both) my critters (horses, cows, goats) have unlimited supplies of hay - always in front of them either inside a stall, barn, kidding pen, pasture, whatever. We've always fed them this way - and probably always will - it's not just a seasonal thing - it's pretty much year round. Granted when the pasture is amazing, the amounts we go through are much less, but they still get and eat some none the less. This isn't a question to judge - but I've been noticing a lot of posts in regards to this on different forums/email lists/etc and began to get curious after seeing some responses...wondering if it's a location difference, breed difference...or just because difference, lol. You don't have to answer why --- just wondering how much you feed them and if you feed in feeders, on the ground, in racks, just at certain times of the day, just certain amts, etc. I know with some horse farms we fed every 4 hrs around the clock - each horse got x lbs of hay and x lbs of grain - they ate on a non-stop clock - always in feeders and hay racks ... How about yall?
