We used sugar beets during mating last season. but not this year.
Sugar beet is a nutritious, super palatable and also energy-rich cow feed, but,, too much of a hassle. for example, harvest, get rid of dirt (I skipped), chop them because they are too big (I skipped, Luckily no one died from choking,, ) and expensive!
Anybody out there using sugar beets during mating?
