I have 2 bred heifers, 3 steers that are yearlings which will be slaughtered next year, and 2 weanling heifer calfs. I am in vermont, so it gets windy, with freezing rain/sleet a lot, and we usually have snow jan through march. Temps usually not much below zero, but with the wind they are. Anyways, i have been free feeding my cows mostly timothy/grass mix hay, then they get beet pulp soaked in water (after its soaked up its a 5 gallon bucket full for all of them), then a even mix of alfalfa/timothy or alfalfa pellets, 12% pro all stock sweet feed (2.5% fat), and corn when its really cold. They have a salt block and a sweet lix mineral block. Are they getting the proper nutrition? They all look nice and fat to me.
