In free choice feeding, when stacks or large round bales are set in open area, cattle may waste from 20% to 50% depending on weather and feed conditions. Grinding the roughage and feeding in bunks is less than 1% loss.
University research has shown that feeding ground roughage can result in greater weight gains; from 20% to 40% when compared with the same amount of roughage fed unground.
Cattle are selective feeders and prefer to eat the most palatable portions of feed supply first. Grinding allows the mixing of poor and better quality materials during the actual grinding process. Mixing in this manner means the cattle are more likely to eat all the materials offered.
Ground roughage is a more manageable form for conveyor equipment and feed bunks, so less waste occurs during handling and feeding. Also labor requirements are less.
Poor quality roughage shows increased value when ground, especially when blended with good quality materials.
Roughage can be directly blended with the other supplements and ingredients in a blender box for a better balanced ration.
Mixture of dry ground roughage with silage provides a much better balanced diet.
Do your own grinding as needed rather than using commercial grinding in large quantities.
When feeding fresh ground hay to dairy cows, milk production will improve 10% to 15% over feeding unground, free choice hay.
