Feeding the Cows

DSCN1142

Once all feed ingredients have been added and mixed together, the mixer box unloads the TMR (total mixed ration) into an elevator that empties the feed onto a conveyor belt which then deposits the feed into the cows’ feeding trough.  The milking cows are fed twice a day before each milking.  It is very important to have fresh feed available for the cows as they leave the milking parlor, as cows tend to eat a large percentage of their daily intake after each milking.
