I'd like to pick your brain a little about cow feed since I'm more familiar with horses.
Lots of conflicting information out there on whether bovines are grazers, browsers or both. What's your experience with this?
Non-competitive horses seem to do very well on Bermuda grass, but too much grazing can lead to laminitis. Do cows get this? What kind of protein/carbohydrate content is optiminal for feed? Can they digest vegetable greens like beet and carrot tops?
Cows are not natural climbers, are they? Not talking about mountains or anything, just hills.
Forgive this very ignorant question, but I've never kept cows. Can they be milked year round or is it just when they're pregnant or have calves?
Your input very much appreciated and I thank you in advance.
