How many people can an entire cow feed?
It depends on the size and how lean the cow or "cow" is. Assuming you are referring to an average market steer, which averages around 1250 lbs, the ideal percentage yield is less than 58%. If you get an average carcass weight of 700 lbs or more from that steer, and everyone eats an 8 oz. portion, it could feed an estimated 1400 people for certain.

Around 325 million by now
Over a million.

The average person consumes about 60 lbs of beef a year. By that math, it will take 360 lbs of meat. Dressing (the % an animal weight that is the bled carcass) is around 60%. …Therefore, you can figure that a 1,250 lbs steer should yield 750 lbs. However, before you go in with someone on a carcass and each taking a side, remember that you are limited on cuts. Take a look at how much ground beef you want. That will be the first thing a butcher asks you.
You certainly can feed sweet corn ("people corn") to cattle, but farmers don't because it doesn't yield nearly as much as field corn (dent corn). Most cattle feedlots operate …on a tight enough margin that they need to feed the least expensive corn they can get, and that's not as cheap as it used to be.
One 1000 lb cow with or without a calf will consume 25 lbs of feed/forage per day in dry matter (DM) ration. This is equivalent to what's called the Animal Unit (AU), since 1 …AU = 1 x 1000 lb cow with or without a calf. In context, this means that a cow or a bovine of any size will eat 2.5% of his/her body weight in DM ration per day. Actual or as-fed consumption varies with moisture content of the feed or forage.
There are a lot of variables to consider here. Location, climate, vegetation, soil type/quality, forage biomass, and forage quality, whether you are using the land for grazing… only or for hay and grazing that means raising your cattle for 365 days a year on only 25 acres are important factors that will determine how many cows you can feed on 25 acres. Some areas, like in the Southwest of the USA, you may be lucky to be able to feed 2 to 3 cows on 25 acres. Further north, like in the Northeast, you may be able to feed 15 to 25 cows on 25 acres. However, as mentioned above, this depends on whether you're just using these acres for grazing only, or if you are keeping your animals all year round and need it for hay production as well if you do not wish to buy hay.
Depending on her weight, and what reproductive stage she is in, a dairy cow typically will eat around 3 to 4% of her body weight in dry matter ration per day. In terms of as-f…ed, this percentage can differ depending on the moisture content of the feed. It can range from 6% to 10% of a dairy cow's body weight as-fed.
not sure- how many burgers did you eat again?
That depends on the type of cow. A dairy cow is able to feed four at one time, whereas a beef cow will be only able to feed one calf at a time--two if she's a really good prod…ucer or has a significant amount of dairy influence in her.
Hay should be fed free-choice, and placed in an area where it is less likely to waste, like in a trough or a bale feeder. Cattle are not horses where they have to be fed a spe…cific amount of hay otherwise they'll over-eat or whatever, they can be fed hay ad libitum without any issues. Also, it really depends on what weight and nutrient requirements your cow (or "cow") has. It also depends on the quality of the hay, and the size and weight of the square bale. A lot of "depends" factors in to how many flakes of hay you can feed a cow, or whether you should just go ahead and feed the whole bale.
It depends on the farmer, what that farmer is feeding and how muchof it he/she is feeding to their cows. Some will feed their cowsonce a week, others once every second day. If… cows need to be fedmore often, the maximum times a day that a cow should be fed istwice a day: mid-morning and late afternoon.
