We have 300 head of milk cows and an equal number of heifers. Cows are fed an 18%CP, 81%NEL TMR consisting of corn silage, whole cottonseed, wet brewers grain, hominy and shredded alfalfa hay, balanced with a 24% protein/vitamin/mineral concentrate. The same ration is fed to all milk cows and cows are fed two to three times a day. Dry matter intake averages 54 pounds a day, depending on the weather. During the hot, humid summer months, we try to adjust the feed ration to compensate for lower feed intake.
