EAST TEXAS (KLTV/KTRE) - We’re looking at why you may want to consider using a hay-ring when feeding cattle.
According to the Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Service, this helps down on cattle wasting the hay.
Without a hay-ring, you can expect to see cattle waste up to half of the bale. Many stock-men want a barrier of some sort to keep the wasted hay to a minimum.
Bunkers, hay rings and old style hay racks will all do the trick of keeping the livestock at bay.
