|The Story Of Milk|
Cows eat up to 8 times a day!
Cows are fed up to eight times a day. Their feed is a combination of hay and silage. This mix is known as a TMR, or Total Mixed Ration.
This TMR generally consists of: hay, corn, barley, field grasses, cotton seed, bakery or grocery by-products.
Cows eat approximately 80 pounds a day at a cost of $3.50, which varies with rising/falling feed costs. And cows drink 30 to 40 gallons of water each day. A cow is a ruminant with four compartments to her digestive system.
