Texas Bred (And anyone else) Feed Analysis

Postby JMJ Farms » Fri Sep 28, 2018 10:24 pm

What is the good and bad of this analysis? Liquid Feed. $325/ton. I’ve got a lot of standing, lower quality grass is like for them to eat up before I start feeding hay.

I was on the biggest registered Brangus spread Wednesday and they fed liquid feed year round. I was told $115 per head per year. But they never fertilize anything and the hermathia grass was unbelievable. They feel it's the most cost effective way to supplement the abundance of 5% grass.

One problem I always have with tubs and licks is that most of the protien comes from urea. Which is just fine since it is blended with a simple sugar like molasses, so when it is broke down in the ruman and becomes free nitrogen, it has a carbohydrate to attach to. But the cost of urea is dirt cheap on a protien basis. So the cost of a tub or lick that has 25% protien from npn really cost around $15 for the nitrogen, plus the cost of molasses, and a mineral/vit package.
Now if they were using more than just urea for the majority of there protien then it might be worth the cost.
Sorry more of a rant than help.

JMJ sorry to be so late to the party. This product is just your "typical" liquid feed. Nothing wrong with it but nothing exceptional either. You won't get any weight gain but it will help cattle maintain weight when fed low quality roughage. Nothing wrong with having the urea (NPN) either. A good cost cutter and effective.

Thanks TB. Is there a better alternative that will help with cleaning up the lower quality roughage and promote weight gain? Or is that like having your cake and eating it too?

One with a higher fat content would have more energy but with limited intake it's doubtful it give much gain AND it would probably cost considerably more.

Straight liquid. Most common way to feed it around here is in lick wheel tanks.

They work real good. It’s just an expensive way to feed cows imo. But it will help utilize some of this low quality standing forage.
