Brood Cow Supplement

 

We’re in the throes of winter-feeding season. Many of us are facing the fact that, due to a rainy season, much of the hay harvested has lower protein and energy levels than is optimal for nursing cows.

We have just the right puzzle piece to fit into the nutritional gaps in your winter feed program. Brood Cow Supplement is a textured feed containing multiple energy and protein sources, as well as vitamins and chelated trace minerals. Cottonseed hulls are used to slow passage rate and improve absorption of nutrients. We even added GHP2, a gut health pack, to bind up toxins in forages.

Energy is more critical than protein for keeping body condition on cattle in the winter. BCS contains steam-flaked corn for maximum energy digestion. This high-energy level allows BCS to be fed at a lower rate to save money. It is designed to be fed in conjunction with hay and STIMU-LYX tubs late in the feed season (right now) to give that extra energy boost cows need to maintain condition and produce the milk their calves need. Feed at a rate of 3-7 pounds per head per day.

Brood Cow Supplement has 13 percent protein and a high energy level that makes it very flexible to feed cattle in all stages of growth. Hand fed to growing calves, developing bulls and heifers, or finishing steers, this product is much better than byproducts or sweet feed to get the proper growth rate.
