How far away are you from both Cotton Country, or, a Dry-lot Dairy? My best ''quick-fix" for body condition was Whole Cottonseed. I think any of the Commodity Brokers near you could get you a load of it pretty cheap. Don't feed it to Bulls, though, because it can affect their fertility. Wintering Dry, Pregnant cows? 2 pounds Whole Cottonseed and 1 pound of ground Corn with free choice grass Hay will be the cheapest You've ever wintered a cow for.ATOZ said:Thanks , I have read about Fast Fat , how much do you feed?

Yep! The Gossypol pigment is why you can't feed it to Bulls--kills the swimmers. Also kills any monogastric creatures, such as pigs and poultry.knabe said:here's a nice table
concerns of cottonseed products are gossypl toxicity.
cotton is named gossypium and has gossypyl yellow pigment to ward off diseases and insects similar to arsenic in other seeds.
