Hi all,

I was wanting info on what/how to feed when there are sheep, goats, jersey cow, and a mini/ shetland pony in the same pasture. Feeding time has become a nightmare. Even w/ 2 bunk feeders 8ft. long there is crowding at the begining.

A round bale is always available. I have been feeding Showtime sheep and goat and giving the cow some cattle cubes but she and the horse have still been eating the showtime. Will that be harmful to the cow and horse? Loose minerals and a sheep/goat protein block is available.

How do others feed when there are many different animals on a property? thanks Katharine
A cheap, safe feed for all is soy hulls. Have clover hay available. I have had no problem feeding good cow mineral to all. Hair sheep may have less problems wih copper than wollies.
