Category: Live from the Ranch

Every year we cut around 300 acres of hay on the Medano meadows and that is what’s going on right now. Our neighbors own all the haying equipment and also do all the cutting, raking, and baling. Joe has been stacking it on a trailer and hauling it in to the bison pens so that it’s in a stack and ready to feed once bison round-up time is here. It takes quite a bit of hay to feed all those bison while they’re in the pens for a few weeks. Feeding hay that is harvested on the ranch eliminates the risk of bringing in noxious weeds that we do not currently have. It also agrees with the bison since it’s the same grass they eat every day.
