Joshua Link. I'm a composer in college in KCMO. I play in the front ensembles for Madison Scouts drum & bugle corps and Gateway Indoor Percussion indoor drumline.
Stuff you can expect to see: Drum corps stuff, WGI stuff, science stuff, concert music stuff, video game stuff, the occasional impressive cosplay, funny stuff, skeptical stuff, and in general whatever the hell else I feel like sharing. You should check out my SoundCloud to see what kind of music I write. A lot of it is free to download. ktnx
The majority of feed used to produce meat is forage. Cows don’t begin the higher fat diet till they enter the feed yard and even then, it’s not until the very end. Up until then they eat their locations native growing grasses and farmed forages that include a variety of tamed grasses and legumes. Some producers choose to add a higher protein or energy feed in the winter if they retain calves that could include speltz grain or wheat pellets.
Once in the yard another big source of feed besides forages and corn is renewable feeds (by products of the original crop) are citrus pulp, almond hulls, distillers grains, soybean chaff and potato peels to name a few.
It’s also imperative for people to remember that the individuals that balance feed yard diets have at least a masters degree in ruminant nutrition and years of industry experience. This isn’t something an average Joe Schmo can do.
