For TN Cattle Producers

TN Farmers' Co-op has a new product called pasture extender. Comes in something like 8%, 10% and 12% protein. Best I can tell it is some type of sawdust (but might be finely chopped up corn stalks) sprayed with molasses water and then some lumps of a molasses blobs in it.

(Whole kernel corn is about 8.5 - 9% protein.)

Bought a bag of 8% as an experiment. My cattle love it - licking the feed trough clean.

They recommend .050% body weight per day (five pounds for a 1,000 animal)
0.05% would be 0.5 pounds for 1000 pound animal
