Those that feed it, how much and how often? I have a handful of Herefords dropping f1's this week. And everything else is heavy bred, should start dropping in Jan-mar. I've been putting out 100 lbs twice a week 40 head

On sure enough winter grass or average hay I would be at about 150 pounds a day on 40 pairs.
Your probably good on the dry cows.

You'd say I'm good on twice a week or would you bump that to every day?

Back when it was 80$/ ton we used to feed 2 1/2 lbs /hd on Mondays, Wednesday and Friday( had a older guy that fed those days and it worked good), sacked it up and fed in little piles on clean sod

Pretty much what I'm doin now. I have it dumped on covered concrete. Then scraping it into old feed and corn sacks then making 4-5 piles/sack. We're your cows dry or lactating turkey bird?

They were dry, but when they started calving we would top dress a little ground corn on top( aimed for one pound)

I would think that your good what your doing on dry cows. Maybe go every other day if your grass is played out.
Once they calve start ramping it up.
