Re: Overweight cows

Thanks Mark, we are going to see if they loose weight over winter, then put them to the bull, it's been 2-3 years since they last calved. If unsuccessful in the spring then I'm afraid we will have to cull them.

Re: Overweight cows

Thanks Louisa,
We have separated, the overweight cows and kept them outside on just grass( we have plenty) the steers, cows and calves are in the barn and yard on hay.

Re: Overweight cows

They are in a pole barn with a open yard in front. They have a round feeder for hay.
