In this blog post, we will answer the question of whether cows are allowed to eat apples. We will also cover some other things you may not know about the consumption habits of cows. This is a comprehensive guide!
Do cows eat apples?
Cows are herbivores, which means they only consume plant-based foods. So will have to find out if there’s a way around this!
In order for cattle farmers to feed their livestock other food sources than just hay and grass, some protein supplementation is needed. This can be in the form of corn or soybeans offered in addition to the normal diet.
These extra nutrients are often used as part of a mix that includes alfalfa pellets and cottonseed meal mixed with beet pulp, grain minds (the outer covering of grains), dried distillers’ grains (which contain high levels of protein) and molasses all added together—sometimes called TMR or total mixed ration.
