I currently have a small cow calf operation and background the calves up to near or at finishing weight and just purchased a john deere 750 grinder mixer with hay table in very nice shape.
My goal with this machine is to cut feed cost, currently getting a cracked corn/ DDG/ pellets (based on ration), ground and delivered from a local mill but there mixing/delivery costs keep going up. Then use grass hay for filler.
My question is where do I start †o look at different rations to mix with this machine any resources available online and I would appreciate any recommendations. I have very good alfalfa/ grass hay mix available with plenty of corn on the farm.
Any recommendations appreciated
thanks

Find an older miller, tell him what you have available for feed. Ask him what he would recommend. Most will come up with a simple ration, amount of minerals, salt, and vitamins, that will save you the cost of a pro.

See if your feed company will give you a copy of the formula sheet for the feed you're now feeding then just use the same ingredients.
