    How much urea is to much urea?

    Faster horses, yes lots of those around in people's trees. Those came out before my time, but dad said the stuff that was bitter they wouldn't eat. They put DDG in their for reasons other than filler. I think the boxes would have worked, but some of the boxes set up and got hard because to hey...

    Coyote solution ?

    I'd caution on poisoning dead animals to o get the coyotes. Probably 15-20 years ago a group of neighbors would put antifreeze in a critter, and leave them out for the yotes to find. Well the yotes found them. Some bald eagles also found them. Game and parks investigated and decided to fine...

    How much urea is to much urea?

    Wondered if you'd comment Texas. Ya, I used a newer version of biomoss in the tubs last year. Kinda potato/patato

    How much urea is to much urea?

    Ya, a ridley or vitalyx is hard to beat. Not sure who manufactures this tub. I think it's a loomix company. Ya, I'm a believer in mineral. Just stating that that if it's in the, available, and mixed at a proper rate to coincide with intake it wouldn't be all bad. I'd probably still have...

    How much urea is to much urea?

    Kinda like the counterpoint sales pitch against a riomax tub is there's not enough room to formulate it with everything garunteed in the label.

    How much urea is to much urea?

    Agreed. Guy said I could find information/feed tag on the internet about them. Ignitor is the brand name. Found some tubs, but nothing with the amaferm in them. So IDK if it's his own blend or what. He sells bulls etc, so I'd think he wouldn't go cheap on that part. Got to keep the tubs...

    Winter supplement options

    I'll test hay. Hay test can vary by how accurate your samples are, but it's better than a shot in the dark. Feed man says stalks 5-6% protein. Obviously that will depend on how corn the combine didn't get. General concensus around here is you can get away with some urea provided there's an...

    How much urea is to much urea?

    Well I've whiteled down my cornstalk supplement choices. One tub is a 30% with 17% urea/npn. I'm not real crazy about that much urea as I can buy the 30-10 I normally use for the same money, plus a couple of other advantages. The 30-17 tub supposedly has a complete mineral package with aviala...

    Winter supplement options

    A lot of distillers is used.... modified, dry, etc. I've used it in the past. They call it a co-product instead of a byproduct and price it accordingly. With $5-6 corn it's not cheap either. Same with alfalfa. Price per pound of protein might change things. Some of the issue is they will...

    Winter supplement options

    Well I know option vary by region and there people on here from the Mexican border up into Canada. Options vary by region. I also know unless your to dam honest of a salesman, every salesman thinks their product is the best! With that being said Northern Nebraska had had our turn with drought...

    Max price on a Bull for commercial use

    Ya, we all know an auction is supposed to be an auction. Guess if I sell something at a consignment auction I put a reserve on it. I don't have a bid being pulled out if its dirt cheap or to get a bid....yes theres a fine line there. You run me after the price gets up there a ways, thats a...

    liquid protein supplement

    I'm not going to argue,it's not worth my time. I used mix 30 in once. Id say your right as far as the as fed part. All I'm saying is sometimes is by the time you figure you it cost per pound of protein on a dry matter basis the ingredient that's dryer is actually cheaper because you can use...

    liquid protein supplement

    I'm well aware of why we need to feed protein.....be it tubs, cake/cubs, grain, silage, etc. All of these sources of protein have a certain percentage of moisture. Which hay, cubes, tubs are dry enough it's kinda pointless to figure. The point of my comment is you need to take the percentage...

    liquid protein supplement

    I'm not saying a liquid feed is not a good feed. I've used it myself as well. the liquid gives you some advantages in certain ways for doing certain things. It's just something you got to remember you can buy a dry product maybe cheaper and use your own water is what in one neighbor did 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Liquid is a good product. Your buying water. Price your ingredients on a dry matter basis.

    liquid protein supplement

    Distillers is used heavily around here. I've fed it to cows. If you don't feed a massive amount, it won't hurt you. I'd feed my cows 4# of modified as fed.....used it like a cake. You get 10-15#ish I don't think there's any data saying negative effects. Guys say it effects breed back...
