Beef cattle should always be offered salt and a nutritional supplement to balance their forage diet. This time of year, when green grass is non-existent, the nutritional value of hay diets can vary from excellent to very poor. Cattle need proper supplementation depending on the nutritional quality of the forage (hay) they are being fed.
