Cow Birthing Feed

If you've ever had a tough birth, you remember the need to regain strength, get that milk flowing for the newborn, and get back on your feet. All mamas need a little extra boost sometimes, especially if they are older or fighting untoward circumstances. When we have a cow that needs a little TLC, this mix is our go-to to strengthen and help them carry on.
  • Difficulty: Easy
Servings: 4 yield(s)
Prep Time: 10 mins
  • 1 gal oats
  • 1/2 lb alfalfa leaves
  • 1/2 lb red raspberry leaves
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 2 calcium-magnesium tablets (crushed)
  1. MIx all ingredients together and store in airtight container. Give about a fourth of the mix at a time to the cow every couple hours after birth. Repeat if necessary. Will work for sheep too, but they only need about a cup each time.
