I'm just wondering what your thoughts are on favorite feeds around the country,whether they are sweet feeds, pellets, etc.Protein percentages, and ingredients. Conditioning,feeds, and what's best for Cow-Calf pairs in winter. Thanks,P.C.

We feed good quality hay only to our fall calvers all winter. We feed 20% protein pellets to the young weaned heifers and bulls thru the winter. It just happens to be the cheapest feed we can get.

The only thing that get grain on my farm (in New York) is our showstring and our weaned heifers thru the winter til safe in calf. We only calve a few in the fall, and we put them with our bred first & second calf heifers, on good grass baleage. We do have a creep feeder set up for the winter calves. Our showstring is fed a 15% protein pelleted feed, with beet pulp pellets & a yeast/lactobacillis powder added (all minerals are included - our own formula). We lower our protein content of the pellets to about 12.5% for the winter ration for our weaned calves. Other than that, we feed large dry grass hay bales & wet grass baleage.
