Why do they sometimes pick up hardware ???? Doesn't seem that it ould be natural either.
Excellent point. Took a nail out of the jaw of one of out top cows 2 years ago....thus the..." hoggish".... point. Another one had a bale string three times around her tongue down her throat. Saw her throwing her head and trying to ...burp...regurgutate. Thus the ..."hoggish"...point.
But, here's the kicker...we didn't feed it to them on purpose.
You got nails and baling twine in with your dry feed????

Wish I knew....the string I am sure from the round bales...the nail....wouldn't venture a guess....could have been from many points...perhaps chewing on the fence boards some where.
Looks like you've made my point for me.
