A good rule of thumb that i follow is feed her 2% of body weight per day. Grain is not neccesry prior to calving but if she is having her first calf a few pounds of grain per day post calving will help her regain body condition and help her start cycling earlier.Most importantly she should maintain body condition, if she does this and her protein requirements are met you should be fine.
