During the warm summer temperatures, our Brown Swiss herd grazes outdoors in the evenings and return to the barn during the hot days. This schedule keeps them cooler, cleaner, and more comfortable. Additionally, grass grows more slowly this time of year, so we supplement outdoor grazing with indoor feeding so the herd doesn’t have to travel far in the hot sun for new grass.
