I'm thinking of using it this winter to supplement the cows and use it to finish a couple of steers.

We used it. Its real meesy and hard to handle/feed in the low amounts needed. Best way to use it might be to water it down and feed it in a tank.

I picked up a couple barrels last week and cut the drums in half . The first day all the cows and horses were eating it like crazy. I pulled it after about 8 hrs and they had ate probably 40lbs Between 48 head. I put it back out the next day and they were not as eager to eat it all up. I would see one licking it and then go back to the hay. The 300 lb lasted 4 days. Compared to a 20% protein 200 lb they will eat it up in day.

M5 where do you get 500 lbs of peanut butter for $60? I probably won't feed any to the cows but I love peanut butter! By the way do you know where I might get a deal on jelly. :banana:

There's a farm store in GA that gets it and sells it as deer and wild hog attractor. It is smooth and taste pretty good. It's says not for human consumption.

I get more deer pics on a jar of peanut butter than a corn pile.
