    I was wondering if anyone here has had experience feeding Urea to Cattle, or Sheep, any Rumen for that matter. If you have fed it what have you thought of it? What were your results? and Where you impressed with the outcomes?

    It gives an instant boost by increasing available nitrogen to rumen microbes. Be VERY carefull about overfeeding, can prove fatal.

    I also heard it could be fatal to goats. So I never feed it to any of our animals.
