This is a loaded question because it depends on a number of factors, namely:
So, to get things rolling the best thing to do is provide an example cow to give an example winter ration using hay.
Let's say this is a 1400 lb dry, bred cow in mid-pregnancy. It's January 15th and current air temperatures are sitting at -20ºC; last month was the same, and she has a winter coat on that's clean and dry. She has a moderate body condition score of 5 (out of a scale of 1 to 9, with a BCS of 1 being truly emaciated), so she's in good condition. She's sitting where she needs at least 7 to 8% protein. She's an Angus-Simmental cross, with most of her breeding as Angus. (What bull she's bred to has no influence on her nutritional requirements.) The hay is good quality grass hay, tested at around 9% protein and with a TDN value of 60%. Dry matter content is 18%.
Since she's at 1400 lbs, she's expected to eat, at the minimum, 30 pounds of hay per day. At the most, she'll consume around 35 to 38 pounds per day, as dry matter ration. So, according to my calculations, the proper amount to feed her per day is around 35 pounds per day. She'll be getting enough protein from the hay alone so there's no need to worry about feeding extra grain until she calves and is lactating. A lactating beef cow will need 11% protein or more, so bringing the hay down by only two or three pounds and adding ~5 pounds of barley or oats will be enough to give her enough protein and energy for milk production.
The reason I added those seven factors was that each of these factors will influence how much a cow will eat per day. Here's how:
At least once a day, with a proper amount of water. Just make sure you feed them the right food and amount. During the summer, I feed them twice a day.
They feed heavily during the summer and fall, then seek out dens in which to spend the winter.
no because i havent feed mine in 4 mounths of winter
In the animal store
If the tank is inside where it is warm, then yes, because the fish have no idea that its winter outside.
Put out feed to it. Proper rabbit food, not any old leftovers
If a horse is exclusively on pasture only, then the cost to feed it is the cost of the land and its maintenance.
It is recommended that you feed it about 2 or 3 flies per month during the summer and a bit less during winter when it goes more dormant.
It depends on where you are and where you get them but yes you can! (: Hope I Helped!
You feed horses the same thing in the winter as you do the rest of the year. The only thing you might want to change is to feed more hay, as this is how a horse stays warm in the winter.
The honey that bees produce is to feed themselves during the winter. If a beekeeper removes all of their honey, the bees would die of starvation during the winter as they have no way of replenishing their lost stores (no flowers in the winter). The bees are usually fed sugar syrup - a mixture of ordinary granulated sugar mixed with water.
Feeder rosey reds or new born pinky mice. You can get them at your local pet store. You'll need to provide the proper temperature for it to feed though.
Bees make honey to feed themselves during the winter when there are no flowers to supply them with nectar. So, they make honey in the summer and eat it in the winter.
Absolutely. Ponies are really just smaller-sized horses. Though the proper amount of feed for a pony would most likely be less than a horse, it'd be the same type of feed. For examples, search What do you feed a shetland pony and how much?Runninghorse
Well, it really depends what kind of horse you have. You can talk to your veet for the right amount of each.
A cow will typically eat between 2.5 and 4% of her body weight per day. Depending on her actual weight and if she's lactating, she may eat between 25 and 50 lbs of hay per day. Small cows tend to eat less than big cows, and cows tend to eat more when it's colder. It's best to feed her free-choice hay, or feed her as much as she wants to eat than to have a portion-type feed plan for her. If you have large square or large round bales, then give her that and it may last her for a while. It will last a bit shorter if she isn't alone, so you'll have to calculate how much feed, as an estimation, you'll need over the winter to feed her and her herdmates.
Because they need to make winter feed for their livestock during the winter, otherwise their livestock would simply starve to death on nothing but snow to eat on.
Bees store honey in the hive and use that for food and fuel during the winter. A typical hive can store up to 60-70 pounds of honey for the winter months.
In 1886 to 1887, there was the worst winter in years with blizzards and really deep snow, and during that time ranchers had failed to put up enough hay for the winter, if any at all. Thousands of cattle starved or froze to death in the US, and thousands more that were herded up to Alberta to catch any feed from the Chinook winds also starved and froze to death when winter came howling back from when the Chinook no longer blew. Overgrazing of rangelands also had a huge impact on ranchers during this terrible winter too, as when you get overgrazing, you don't either have enough feed for the winter, or not enough feed to cut for hay to store for the winter.
No. Humpback whales come to Hawaii after feeding on krill in the North Pacific during the summer. They come to the warm waters of Hawaii to give birth. The whales do not feed during the winter in Hawaii. They use their stored fat to live through the season, focussing on their babies (and mating!).
No Way! Never feed anything to the goldfish, only there proper feed! :) x
During the winter months, you may have to feed your snail based on what you keep in the refrigerator. Even if the produce is starting to go bad, chances are the snail will eat it. Be very careful when feeding them human food. If you feed them salty or sugary things, they will die. Try to supplement their diet with sources of high amounts of calcium. They require a large amount of calcium to keep their shells strong. Their shell is their natural defense.
The bee takes the nectar back to its home and turns it into honey to feed itself during the winter.
During the cold months, bees feed on the honey in the hive in order to survive while nectar is scarce.
