Cheap Cows

Postby wacocowboy » Tue Nov 21, 2017 1:15 am

You know the saying a cheap date when your girl orders something cheap on the menu well my cows are cheap. I had a messed up oat and rye grass bale and just to get it out the way I set it out then put out a nice good quality coastal bale. It wasn’t just my main cows the young ones I have for sale choose the slug oat and rye over the coastal bale.

Does it make you question how good are your coastal bales?

Our cows will eat green oat hay over any other hay you offer.

The root cause of the majority of the problems in the world today is that common sense is no longer a prerequisite to staying alive.

Mine will eat anything before they eat coastal.

A good wire fence is like a tight skirt. It protects the goods without blocking the view.

Seems cows will always choose oat hay over just about anything else.

Same here if you kept out Bahia and coastal the coastal would rot before they ate it.

I didn’t have them tested but the field I bought them out was a good field.

I know next time just buy cheap oats and rye bales.

Mine will. I usually have enough Oat hay don’t have to buy hay. This year had to buy hay so figured I’d give them a treat lol. I planted sudan one year they liked the oat bales over the sudan too.
