thinking about putting pairs out on a field that is about 85% grass 15% alfalfa. Calves range from 3 month to 3 weeks old. cows have been being feed hay and cube, do to it being dry here our normal summer ground has no grass to speak of. i put in a bloat block 2 days ago. whats everybodys thoughts ? i sure dont want to bloat any of them !

Doesn't seem like you're going to encounter any bloat problem with 15% alfalfa. Just don't put the cows in there real hungry if you think the grass is poor. I'd suggest giving them a fill of grass hay before turning in if it settles your nerves. If the 85% grass is at least a good stand then they'll be fine. Just my experience.
