When the grass dies back in winter, the cows start munching the hay raised on the farm. A change in forage can mean each cows’ individual vitamin and mineral needs shift. Uncanny creatures, cow have a real nose for their own needs. Put a selection of supplements in front of them and they will choose exactly what is required.
So, we set up a self selecting mineral bar for our ladies. Every day when they come in for milking, the girls can belly up to the bar for a refreshing cocktail of potassium, vitamin B complex and calcium. There’s not a mixologist in town as good as any one of our gals.
(The mineral bar will be a refreshing stop on all our farm tours. If you know your periodic table, the signage will be not seem muddled at all.)
