What do 100% grass-fed cows eat in the winter?

During the winter, when pastures are dormant, our 100% grass-fed cows eat hay (dried grass) and baleage, (fermented, high-moisture grass). This feed is usually cut and stored by the farmer, coming from the same land the cows graze in season. Sometimes it can also be purchased from other certified farms. Our farmers may supplement with molasses or apple cider vinegar in the wintertime to maintain rumen health and provide extra minerals and nutrients for the cows. Our farms do not supplement our cows OR calves with grain, corn, soy, or other foods in the wintertime or during grazing season.
