I am trying to figure out how to background some calves this winter without buying either a mixer box or hauling more 5 gallon buckets. Usually we bucket them 3.5-4 lb grain (75 corn/25 DDG) and free choice grass/alfalfa hay. I talked to a Sweetpro rep today who said one lb of Sweetpro (Kalfkandi I think is the one he recommended) would likely take the place of about 3 lb grain. Wondering if anyone has used their products in a backgrounding situation and how it turned out. Thanks.
no molasses in it. Supposed to be some sort of ingredients that feed the rumen bugs to be more efficient with forages. I know it sounds a little hokey. But I'm trying to keep an open mind. I know a guy who has used it on a very small scale and was happy with the results but I need a little more than his experience.
