I brought home a fresh jersey about 2 months ago. The dairy man told me 1-2willow_girl said:I'm thinking 3 flakes of hay per day? How much grain (sweet feed) though? 5 lb? Or more?
Help me out, folks!
gallons of feed at milking, and 1% of her body weight in hay...for my girl, I'm thinking 75 pounds. Actually, since I'm a very slow milker, I give her as much grain as I need to to keep her busy.
