Re: Porta-Grazer and mixing staw with hay

Kathy Brinkerhoff

Hi Tracy,

I don't  have any experience with using a Porta- Grazer, but here is a link to an article on feeding straw by Dr. Kellon from July, 2015 and a link to Dairy One's Feed Composition Library.  There is a general category for Straw listed under the (D-O)  hay category and it shows an average of ESC 3.6 and Starch 2.0.  I would suggest that whatever straw you decide to feed/buy as a bottom layer for your hay that you have it analyzed before feeding it to your Paso.
