    Feeding Pumpkins

    I have access to alot of cull pumpkins ( some split in half some smashed some with dings in them ) but not sure how to go about feeding them to cows ? do i need to cut them up into small chunks to help prevent the cows and calfs from choking or can i just throw them out in the field ? thanks
