Manitoba Alternative Feeds Listing

Using Alternative Feeds for Cattle

With a shortage of feed this year you may look to non-traditional feeds to get your cattle through the winter. Many different feeds (screenings, hulls, weeds, sprouted grains, pellets, etc.) can be used as part of the ration as long as the complete ration is balanced for energy, protein, vitamins and minerals. You must get a feed test done on the alternative feeds so you can balance the rest of the ration to make sure your cattle’s nutritional needs are met.

Information on using alternative feeds for formulating rations is available:
