What are some alternative feeds I can use to keep feed costs down for my sheep, goats and cattle?
For ruminants (cattle, goats & sheep) pasture is the least expensive feed. Rotational grazing can improve the quality of the forage. They can also be fed grain by-products like cull beans, beer or distillers grains, cull potatoes, etc. It is important to slowly introduce these feeds into their diets so they don’t cause digestive upsets.
