I do believe that's what I said.
Actually for most beef operations it contains too much crude protein unless limit fed and should be fed as a mix with grass hay. No need wasting all that good protein by allowing it to end up on the ground without being utilized. The cow needs that roughage part of it as much if not more than she needs the high protein.
You are quite right and that's what has been said. Great as a protein supplement but not full feed.
