The ranch I work on feeds grass and hay if we get rain.
We feed whole cotten seeds during hard times, cattle
and deer love it, and stay in good shape during winter months.

My cows get hay and corn silage in the feeding seasons and grass during the grazing. My fed cattle get a mixture of corn silage and good hay and a custom corn based mix.

Cattle graze on coastal as long as it lasts...depending on rains it may last til November. Then feed hay and 40% range cubes. Creep feeder is available to calves year round with a custom mix of corn, cotton seed hulls, distillers grain, vitamins, minerals, CTC and Bovatec. Calves have access to this as soon as they are willing to go into the feeder and then just grow their way out of it.

Nothing but pasture from about April to December. From December until the end of March- hay. This along with trace mineral salt. The only time we feed any corn is for a slaughter animal or to help us get them in the catch pen.
