East Texas Ag News: Supplementing Protein

TYLER, TX (KLTV/KTRE) - With the shortage of good hay, it is important for stockmen to supplement protein in a cost-efficient manner.

Options include feeding cubes in one ton totes or using large squares of alfalfa portioned out.

Another choice is using protein tubs and licks.

The Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Service in Angelina County warns us not to always accept the easiest option because that doesn’t translate into the cheapest.

The more you go for convenience, the more you can expect to pay. They suggest you study the options and know the costs up front.
