    We looked at the farm , they were trying to sell it lock , stock and barrel, we valued the cows way less than they thought they were worth.

    those stakes look really close together! I can only afford enough to have them 20 paces apart!

    @Headless chicken No other minerals, that's correct. We test cows to see what they need mineral wise and then set up required liquid minerals and adjust as animals numbers go up / down or season changes. All our cake and calf pellets are ordered "mineral free"

  10. For herd aged cows, that would be strong enough.
     
  11. Part of the reason I've been delaying on LMS is because i can't use it all year, all my grazing platform is on one water line but none of my dry cow housing or dry cow fields are. Also we are on a buying group cake that offers an insignificant price reduction for making an unmineralised cake. I'm still tempted by it but i would still have to use a TE bolus at dry off and probably feed standard cake through early spring and just use the liquid minerals through summer and autumn when i have no other easy way of getting mins into them.
