No doubt. :nod:kenny thomas":3a7pjmfi said:My grandpa always said when they split the tail and put the salt in it they then kept the cow up for a week or two and fed her good until she got better. Could have been hollow belly instead.

I think there is pure profit in the understory and it warms my heart when I see a cow scarfing up these weeds and getting slick in the process. Some of the understory plants have a higher protein content than anything I can grow but timing is very important. Successful grazing of this is an art which I have yet to get a handle on but I'm working on it. Biggest problem is fencing then checking the fences as this can be quite a job.
