Fodder Storage Sites have been popping up in remote rural Montana, where the climate and landscape make them a natural fit.
A small community in the Montana Rockies has been using the facilities for years, but they’re getting a new lease on life as the state moves toward more efficient and efficient agriculture.
As the drought-ravaged West gets drier, a number of Wyoming ranchers have begun using them as the only way to keep cattle healthy.
Here’s how to make it work.
Here are some ideas to get you started.
The state has been getting rid of thousands of acres of land from the grazing industry in recent years, and that’s left the land barren and vulnerable to the elements.
But a handful of ranchers are starting to get back on the land.
In April, Wyoming rancher Chris Johnson and his family started a company called the Greenhouse and Feedlot Facility in the town of Fedders, near the town site.
They said they would lease the land to the county for storage and that they were building a system to help keep cattle fed, watered and housed.
The project has already started, and now, with a couple of small exceptions, they’ve been able to get on the ground.
The site has a couple big storage tanks, and the plan is to use them to store the grasses and hay they grow.
In addition to hay, they’ll also store a lot of other things that people can’t grow on their land.
But the biggest item in storage will be grasses.
Johnson said the biggest challenge is keeping the hay supply up to date.
And that can be a big challenge, because you need to be able to keep the hay up to standard by the time the hay is coming out.
“That’s why you need hay,” Johnson said.
“When the hay gets out of the hay pile, you can’t keep it.
It’s not good for the grass or the hay.
You’ve got to be careful with it.”
He said that if they’re lucky, they might be able use the hay for planting in the future.
The hay is what keeps the cattle healthy, and they’ll need that.
It’ll also be what helps the cattle thrive, said Mike Bivens, a regional manager for the Bureau of Land Management in western Montana.
“We need that hay,” he said.
A number of people who have been using feedlots to make money have tried to sell their land to them, but Johnson and Bivins said the farmers who are leasing the land don’t want to give up the land they’ve had for years.
“There’s a lot people who don’t even know what to do with their land,” Bivans said.
The Fedder and Feedlots Facility has had a number, from local ranchers to the state, to sell land, said Greg Anderson, a farmer who’s used feedlows for his ranch.
“I can’t imagine how much it’s worth,” Anderson said.
He said it’s important that they get the land out of their hands.
“It’s a good way to help the people of this community.
It brings back a lot to them,” Anderson added.
“They’re not looking to take it away from them, they’re looking to help people.”
That’s why the county will pay for the facility to be built.
Anderson said he’s hoping that it will be ready to use in a few months.
It takes about 30 to 40 years for a pasture to produce grass.
“Our cattle don’t take up space on their own.
We’re using the grass to build their homes,” Anderson explained.
But if you want to use the facilities, it will cost about $1,500 to $1.75 per acre, and it will take about a year to build, said Steve Hirsch, a director for the Montana Department of Natural Resources.
There’s a pilot project in place in Fedding to use hay and grass as a way to feed livestock, but it’s still a bit early in the process.
Anderson hopes the site can be ready for the general public by mid-year, but that’s not set in stone.
He’s hopeful that the facility will be able be ready in time for the start of the summer farming season.
The county will be working with the Feddest Facility on a pilot program to see how that works.
“If we can get it up and running in time, I’d be very excited,” Hirsch said.
For now, though, the facility is just a pilot, and nothing has been finalized.
Anderson and his wife, Linda, have a couple acres of pasture already set up.
“Right now, we have nothing.
I think we’ll just have to wait and see what happens,” Anderson laughed.
