Hay Kings Podcast: Putting Up Hay and Feeding Cattle During Drought
On this episode of the Hay Kings Podcast, Vermeer Territory Manager Boyd Quinley joins Jon Paul Driver to discuss how a 2022 drought impacted hay and cattle producers across North America. Quinley works with Vermeer dealers and customers in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana. His territory saw some of the worst drought conditions, prompting some producers to make tough decisions, like culling a larger part of their herds rather than face the struggle of feeding cattle during drought.
In their conversation, Quinley and Driver talk through a number of topics, including strategies to help stretch hay supplies while feeding cattle in drought, resources for producers seeking hay drought relief and how coming out of a drought in 2023 could impact producer behavior. Take a listen.
