Hay stocks remain low in southern High Plains

By Jennifer M. Latzke

The rains have come--sporadically--to Texas. But after a multi-year drought that has reduced herds and tightened hay stocks, Texas producers need to be more efficient in the production, storage and feeding of their hay than ever before.

Vanessa Corriher, Texas AgriLife Extension forage specialist, and Jason Banta, Texas AgriLife Extension beef cattle specialist, hosted meetings in late April and early May to help producers as they improve forage production. Both are located at the Texas AgriLife Research and Extension Center at Overton, Texas.
