    Distillers grain vs corn

    I used it. I sent it off to be tested, came back 11% protein. Once I figured up the gas and time to haul it, how much “dry” brewers grain actually weighed, I was better off feeding something else.

    What’s everyone using for minerals.

    Purina “wind and rain” free choice minerals. It’s never done me wrong. They take it when needed. When the pastures are poor, they take more. Spring time they don’t use much.

    Case 60XT

    Guy insisted I bring cash to Houston. I decided if it’s to good to be true, it’s is. My gut said not to take $1000’s in cash to a Craigslist deal. I offered a cashiers check but he still insisted on as much cash as possible. I’ll kept looking. Found a Cat 226b, more hours(1700), more money but...

After that seeded everywhere I had open ground, around all senderos, roads, fenclines, around all mesquites, anywhere the sun had pushed away the...

    with drought, has anyone ever fed sawdust?

    Good advice. All mine are bred, I was trying to sell in pairs or just the calves in spring but you got me thinking. The calves on the ground now are going to have to go as well as a few of the older cows that won't earn the winter feed.

    with drought, has anyone ever fed sawdust?

    I have a lot of Mesquite s on my place and I was on a Mesquite eradication mission for a while. I just got into the bee business this last year and Mesquite pollen makes darn good honey so I stopped cutting them down.

    with drought, has anyone ever fed sawdust?

    I can't find any info on oak, that's why I am asking. If it's just roughage then the only benifit would be energy?
