Negative. I have been reading about that though. I know the protein is a little less, but there are some other nutrients that exceed grass hay. Correct me if I am wrong, but the TDN is checking for nitrates, right? I did read that crops grown in drought conditions can be high in nitrates from the fertilizer. This crop was grown under center pivot irrigation, so I assume it may not be as drought stricken.
I am trying to get Dad to take some samples to the LSU Extension office to have it tested. I assume we may have to supplement with range cubes or other feed too. I'd hate for him to kill off his herds. Later in the year we will open our hay fields to the cows for fall grazing.
There are several farmers that are opening up their fields in Central Louisiana to Texas farmers. The agreement is you bring your equipment in, respect the land, and we will not charge you to harvest. Thought I have also heard some farmers are charging $5 a bale to harvest stubble. There are nothing but 18 wheeler's with flatbeds moving up and down I-49.
I also heard that in this region (LA, TX, MS, AR...) DOT has removed a lot of restrictions due to weight, width, ect as long as the loads are secure and safe. Commercial and Farm, as long as the commodity is HAY. That was hearsay, but from the amount of overloaded vehicles I have seen on the highways and interstate I can believe it.
This can almost be called a disaster as far as cattle farming is concerned.

| Total Digestible Nutrients. When thinking about nitrates, you're probably talking about prussic acid.....which can be a problem, but usually isn't if the hay is handled correctly. |
