Good feed and good price as well. Don't think you need that much protein but what the heck.


I really don't need that much protein but one of my major issues has been that I can't keep calves in the dry lot with bad hay. So I overshot the mark. Having some issues with waste with the DDG due to wind and being setup to feed pellets so I'm spraying a mist of water on the feed as it comes out of the bin. Seems to help somewhat.

Great idea. !!

Jan we have worlds of shut down dairy barns around here and almost every one has two large tanks (18 tons) down to 2 ton tanks. You would think they were made out of gold when they price them. Guess they'll just sit there until the rust out.
