Calves on tubs

Postby Brute 23 » Sat Dec 23, 2017 9:19 am

I see this pretty often. I was putting out hay and the calves were going to town on this tub. You could hear them licking away.

I guess it's a good thing. :)

Mom's must be lacking in the milk department? The cost of feeding tubs is to high for my operation. For the cost of a ton of tubs, I can feed 3+ tons of cotton seed.

Calves lick tubes because their calves it has nothing to do with milk.
The natural protein in the tubs is a good thing. The urea does no harm or good for calves.

I feed cottonseed to one herd and tubs to two others. Anyone who thinks there is no situations where tubs are cheaper needs to take a class in business.

No doubt what works for one operation isn't the best for the next. I was under the impression that all a Brahma cow needed was land and she could do the rest. Brahman cattle must not be so super duper after all.
