What is the best type of hay/grass for young cows? What is the best hay/grass for heifers? What is the best hay/grass for steers?

What type of hay gives the best results for your livestock for the least amount of money?

Thank you

In the attached link is a excel program/spreadshhet that calculates how much of what is needed for varies cows. By plugging in your different hay/grain/supplement options it will tell you how much you need. You can then figure out on your feed availablity and costs what is most economic for you. It is called "cowculater". Good luck, hope it helps

brome --it seems to me the best hay to feed to any of these 3 kinds, it has enough protein that you don't have to feed as much other mixed grains to get the maintain or gain your looking for. for example with feeding brome round bales in the winter you only need to feed 2.5 lbs of alfalfa and 1 pound of rolled milo to have a bred cow maintain thru the winter--good luck
