A large steel hood covers the flails for maximum safety and keeps flying manure low where the wind cannot carry it. We tested it on our torture track and tested it on farms in sub-zero weather to prove its ability to spread sloppy manure without build-up, as well as spread frozen manure. The NEW IDEA Flail Spreader has a 130 bushel capacity, and a low 53%" profile for easy loading with barn cleaner or hydraulic loader. It has a water-repellent Penta-treated box, full- length steel flares, and many other long life features. Heavy-duty conveyor is standard; extra heavy is optional.

NAME- STUDENT D ADDRESS- TOWN_ STATE- You'll need to feed tome hay if there's a snow cover on the ground. However, don't feed more than cattle will clean up, This increases your costs. Records of Indiana beef cow owners show a ration consisting entirely of premium quality legume hay would cost about $31 per head for a wintering period of five months. When only enough hay was fed to meet minimum nutritional requirements, wintering costs were about $26 or a savings of $5 a head. ;.--. *'7- • 1 . 1 .^;.v* >" 'S'^^^^^^^illS^^I^ER^^KIII^^ 1 ^ If cows cannot get sufficient protein when there's a snow cover on the ground, feed some protein. The owner of these cows has spread protein cubes on the ground with the hay being fed. Once the hay is cleaned up it's easy for the cows to pick up the protein cubes. Making complete use of crop residues can be a big help in stretching feed supplies. Besides, the cattle will pick up what little grain was left in the field. If you're interested in getting satisfactory gains on this type of feed you'll need to also provide tome protein, though. Several companies now have protein blocks available that work well for cattle grazing stalk fields. Generally you can figure the cattle will consume about on* pound of protein daily.
