I am curious as to how much feed those of you who live in remote areas keep on hand for the winter .....that is excluding hay. So we compare apples and apples, a how many month supply? I try to have 4 months of feed up in mid November. I also try to have a 6 month supply of hay.
Good decisions come from experience. Experience comes from making bad decisions. Mark Twain
I don’t live in a very remote area, just off the beaten path.
On feed, it depends on what it is:
Miscellaneous grains for all critters and treats for cows at milking: two months or so
Broilers feed: all of it for one batch, usually three months (I raise Freedom Rangers)
Hay: pretty much a whole year supply
As for storage of grains, whether is bought or grown here, I have a shipping container I use. Best ever idea. Water proof, rodent proof, critter proof. It’s almost too tight, lack of ventilation can be an issue, but definitely not a deal breaker.
When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
