man! where do you all live? the grass must grow while you watch it! here in central oklahoma the land is average quality and you can get by with one cow per 10 to 20 acres year round, depending on how much land is useable,, trees and washouts dont count. of course you still gotta cake em in the winter and hay em too. If you have a small place you will have to feed and hay year round. with high protein feed such as 21% cubes you gotta feed them quite a bit of roughage, (hay) but the hay can be poor quality. I prefer to feed better quality hay and less of it and feed a lower protein feed such as a 12% sweet mix bought in bulk, which is cheaper than the cubes. I think this is more cost effective in the long run and I personaly think they keep weight better.
