Thta would be 25% on a dry matter basis. "As Fed" it is much less as it's about 65% water (about the same as good silage). We use to feed about 3 truckloads every two weeks to dairy cattle, as much as 40 lbs. per head per day. Very good ingredient and cattle love it. Although it begins as grain after processing for cattle usage it is considered roughage.tncattle":2i665q30 said:

tn, what sort of price did they give you?? I haven't even priced it in 15 years. Use to be pretty cheap.
That sounds like a good idea. Do they wobble after? Can they still drive home?Nesikep":opc93tyy said:my friend feeds it to his hogs, he gets it by the dumptruck load, and spreads it out so it dries.. works good for them.
Tim/South":1y8mrlbz said:I buy it by the truck load, 24 tons. It comes in a coal type truck with a bag on the back. Cost depends on distance hauled. Mine comes from Georgia, is $54 per ton delivered. The bag is $155 added.
I intend to pour a slab and stock pile it this summer.
I feed one ton per day during the winter. That makes it cost $31 per ton for 30% protein feed. cows will drink any water that settles and lick the trough.
I sell it to my neighbors for $12 per 55 gallon barrel.
Where did you buy it 15 years ago?[/quote]Kingfisher":1hofnhrl said:tn, what sort of price did they give you?? I haven't even priced it in 15 years. Use to be pretty cheap.
