Hi.

Thank you for your 'Ask an Expert' question.

The answer to your question depends on a number of variables - specifically what is the supply of vegetation and what is the class of the cow? In other words, are the cattle dry or lactating, etc.? The amount of grass they eat per day will depend on their class. Answering these questions will help you determine the supply and demand.

The following is a link to a brochure the University of Wyoming Extension Barnyards & Backyards team created for Teton County. The brochure outlines how to determine your supply and demand. Please feel free to contact me directly (see below) if you have additional questions or need assistance working through the brochure.
