Winter Feeding
Step 1Provide hay or some form of roughage when there is no longer any pasture.

Step 2Feed a grain mix or cubes of 15 percent or more protein in harsh winter months.

Step 3Keep salt and or a mineral mix. Check with your extension office for the mineral needs in your area to go along with hay.

Step 4Provide water to cattle at all times with a pond or a watering tank. When water freezes, ice must be broken daily for cattle to drink.

Summer Feeding
Step 1Provide cattle with pasture - about an acre per cow depending on type of grass.

Step 2Watch for loose stools early in spring due to green grass. Early grasses are mostly water and do not provide many vitamins and minerals. You will need to keep supplementing your pasture with hay and feed.

Step 3Provide salt or mineral mix.

Step 4Provide water at all times

I found that if you add a little antifreeze to the syrup in the hummingbird feeders those little critters 'drop' by all winter long...

Depends on location.# of cows per acre!

Supplementing your Pasture with hay and feed? Waste of hay if theirs any grass!

What are Cow Magnets?
Cow magnets are popular with dairy farmers and veterinarians to help prevent Hardware Disease in cattle. While grazing, cows eat everything from grass and dirt to nails, staples and bits of bailing wire (referred to as tramp iron). Tramp iron tends to lodge in the honeycombed walls of the reticulum, threatening the surrounding vital organs and causing irritation and inflammation, known as Hardware Disease. The cow loses her appetite and decreases milk output (dairy cows), or her ability to gain weight (feeder stock). Cow magnets help prevent this disease by attracting stray metal from the folds and crevices of the rumen and reticulum. One magnet works for the life of the cow!
