Okay so I have gone back and read most of the threads on putting weight on cows. Most of them I am already feeding more than suggested. I have a 6yo culled from a dairy Jersey cow. She is six months post birth to a beautiful Jersey heifer. She is kept with the baby during the day and then separated during the night (about 12 hours). She gives about 1.5 to 3 gallons to us a day. We feed her 6 qts of sweet feed, 6 qts of cracked corn, 3 qts of alfalfa pellets and about 2 qts of black sunflower seeds (BOSS) (all twice a day). She looks like a cow from a concentration camp! We are starting to get worried. She has really good pasture free choice. She is alert and seems healthy otherwise. We recently increased the corn and sweet feed and it seems she has lost more weight. Hip bones, ribs and backbone are all clearly visible. We love this cow and really want to help her gain weight. Stool is loose but not runny.
