In other words, (and just an example) if i determine that each cow will get 30 pounds of alf hay a day (3% @ 1000#) - and they have a calf on the side, when should i start increasing the total amount of hay a day - say another 15 pounds per day per calf (3% @ 500#).

Daily ration for 10 cows is 300 pounds - adding 10 calves, avg weight 500 adds 150 more pounds of hay - for a total amount at feeding 450 pounds?

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks,

Alex

PS - please don't get lost the size of the animals nor the percentage of feed to total weight.
