Hi Katie

I think you know this now, but keep her off the grass and keep her on teff, if it has tested safe for ESC and Starch.  She still needs adequate but SAFE calories. Here's a good blog from Dr Kellon.

Good that your hay is tested. I agree contacting Carol for balancing your forage and adding a safe concentrate for needed protein and minerals through her pregnancy and nursing.
