At this time, the method of separate feeding can be adopted, feeding coarse material first, and then fine material to ensure that the cow can eat more, promote more food intake.And reduce the amount of leftover in the trough. The specific consumption of cattle is about 110 to 120 pounds of wet feed or 50 to 55 pounds of dry feed per day. If you want cows to produce more milk or grow faster, you have to feed them more. Under the combined feeding method of coarse and concentrated feed, usually 30 to 35 pounds of coarse feed and 25 pounds of grain mixture are enough.
