I've got a small herd of beef cows, I calve late spring so I'm pretty much done calving except for a few stragglers. We are dry here, like dry enough I'm worried I won't have enough hay. Normally I can grow enough for myself and sell a little, its all made as baleage and depending on needs I supplement with gluten pellets.. I can get sweet corn waste from a canary about 15 miles away, either delivered as I use it throughout the summer or I can pile and cover for this winter but the anything over 150 ton I need some sort of leachate containment because it does juice pretty bad. I get it for the cost of trucking, which will be between 8 and 9 a ton. How much of this could I feed to lactating beef cows and what would I need to supplement with? I'm hoping I can get by with dumping a bucket or 2 old this in the bunks per day and still feed the wrapped rye I am now to stretch it out. Thoughts or opinions?
They also process potatoes there, so there are 2 samples of just the sweet corn silage and one with waste potatoes mash mixed in
