Winter feed for geese in cold climate
It seems frivolous to be asking this on a hot day in June, but I like to plan ahead. What do you feed geese in the winter when there is snow on the ground and foraging is difficult?
I have heard a mixture of grains, especially wheat and barley, is good, and a good quality hay for roughage. I suppose any green vegetables like lettuce leftover from the kitchen would be good for them too... but I would like to hear from goose owners in the cold zones so I can give my geese the best care possible.
I have a small field of alfalfa and a clover patch. Should I be scything and drying them to supplement their winter diet?
