    Fall Project Guide - Winter Feeding and Watering

    With colder, winterlike weather, there is a need to address the way you provide feed and water to your animals.

    Fall Project Guide - Winter Feeding and Watering - Steps

    Having Plenty of Water is Essential

    • Without adequate water, livestock can quickly dehydrate
    • Check tanks several times a day and break any ice that forms


    Tank Heaters are Essential

    • Most are submersible, and better units have a thermostat that will shut down if temperatures rise and heat is not required


    Propane Tank Heaters

    • Eliminates the need for electricity so they can be used in remote pastures
    • Inspect heaters and tank regularly




    Heated Buckets

    • Great for a small number of animals
    • Need to be used inside a shelter versus being out in the elements
    • Requires electricity and some way to secure the bucket to the wall or floor


    Cold Weather Means More Feed

    • Animals require more feed to burn the extra calories they need to maintain body temperature
    • Energy can be provided by increasing the amount of hay or other feed


    Supplement Hay with Grain

    • Hay provides excellent energy
    • When hay is in short supply during hard winters, supplementing with grain – oats, barley, wheat, etc. – may be more available and cost effective
