Cottonseed mill

Postby Jamiemw20 » Sun Nov 05, 2017 9:58 am

Does anyone feed Whole cotton seeds or meal to their beef cattle? If so how much do you normally feed with minerals? Have also heard something about not feeding it to bulls because it will make them sterile?

I have 29 cows, 10 heifers and 1 bull and they LOVE it. I split a 50 lb bag of mill fortified with magnesium between 6 troughs. The bull's trough doesn't get as much as the others (he has a favorite one) based on what I read on this site. My vet recommended I might want to boost the Mg after I had one cow prolapse. I asked for blood samples on two or three, hence the boost. I'll probably get another blood test done in the future to verify its making a difference. They get 150 lbs of 20% cubes and the 50 lb sack every two or three days plus plenty of free salt and mineral. The girls are slick as a whistle and the calves loved it too, for what its worth.
