near dyersville iowa
With 40 cows, I struggle with that very issue. Having to start a tractor to grind hay, then one to mix hay, and a skidloader as well. Isnt as bad for me as I already have 2 tractors and a skidloader, but if you are starting out and dont have the equipment to start, it gets real expensive real fast. I bounce back and forth between a hay grinder or just spending more money to put up good fence(the fences on my farm are either gone or not in the best shape). At the moment, Im leaning toward more fence, because cows do have legs to go to the feed..lol..plus the manure hauling goes down..Sometimes the old ways are still good ways. But Im always looking for better ways..so my mind may change at any given time....lol..
