Most feedlots around here have their own mills, where they try to crack the grain without making it too powdery. “You don’t want it too fine because fine [grains] are digested very fast,” Huenerberg says, “like a Mars Bar.” Mars bar-like food can produce acidosis, a gastric upset akin to severe acid reflux. This is not ideal for the cow, or the farmer. Cows with acidosis don’t gain much weight, and cows fed too little grassy fibre can also suffer liver abscesses, bloat and lameness caused by elevated levels of histamines in their blood.
