One man around here is baling off of his CRP. Supposed to have been able to use it for helping themselves get through winter. He is SELLING his round bales for 135 dollars a bale. Almost double what others are.
I have enough I think, and am cutting back at present on pm haying, as they are turned out to pasture and are just wasting it, so am only doing AM. Have talked about a complete feed, and about getting beet pulp, and alfalfa that is crushed too.
Horses I believe can get by with 1-2% of their body weight in roughage. Here is a link, and there are plenty of others too. http://www.pet-care-and-training.com/roughage.html
Straw many hesitate to feed for roughage though due to problems associated with it.
I was scrolling through CL and other places and the prices of horses has dropped tremendously already.
