  • Flooded forage cut for hay may affect livestock

    Flood damaged forage may have elevated levels of ash or bacterial contamination. Both must be considered when feeding livestock.
    Internal mineral content of forages is usually 6 to 8 percent and forage normally has 2 to 4 percent soil contamination is largely silica (sand) and of no nutritional value to animals. This means that forage fed to animals should be increased when ash levels are above 10 to 12 percent and the value of forage reduced correspondingly.
