Grant Ross farms for the future
Grant believes feed tests may hold the key to understanding the effect of the trace minerals on their oaten hay and could help deliver a premium price.
His theory was first put to the test a few years ago, when the Ross family sold some of its rain-affected hay to a local sheep producer. That same sheep producer also purchased hay from a farmer that uses urea.
“Their sheep hardly touched that hay (with urea) …it had big rank stems, whereas ours had the same amount of rain on it – it had that blackish look about it – but they never left anything behind,” Grant said.
“It goes to prove the quality of our hay was just that much better, the sheep ate all of it. That’s why I’m interested in feed testing. If we do sell hay domestically, we will be able to advertise and say we have got a feed test on it and people buying it will know exactly what they are getting.”
