The whole country is getting a bit colder, which means it’s time to start getting things ready to winterize your ranch. Here at D-S Livestock Equipment we have the expertise and products to help you do just that.

Let’s take a few minutes to look at some tips that’ll help your winterization go more smoothly.

Get your feed ready

The most important thing when winterizing your ranch is ensuring that all your feed is ready. If you grow your own hay, make sure it’s out of the fields and in the barn. You’ll also want to remember not to keep your feed too close to your stock, and have a clear path to delivering it to your stock even if a winter storm dumps five feet of snow on the ground.

Prep for Calving

If you calve during the winter, you don’t want to be searching for calving supplies when it’s freezing. Make sure all your calving supplies are in line for when your cows start to calve.

Winterizing your ranch takes a lot of work, and these are just two tips that’ll help you make sure you’re ready for what’s shaping up to be a long, cold winter. If you need to any other advice about ranch winterization, please call us today at 800-949-9997 to see what we can do to help.
