Description:
Windrow grazing or swath grazing can significantly reduce harvesting and feeding costs for forage to cattle enterprises as compared to feeding baled hay. These costs savings can equal clost to $40 per ton. Windrow grazing also effectively returns a majority of nutrients contained in the feed back to the ground that it was harvested from, significantly reducing subsequent fertilizer needs for future crops.
