What kind of grain do dairy cows eat?
cows will eat any grain, but most cows eat corn
Dairy cows eat 2% to 5% of their body weight in dry matter. Translating that into as-fed, dairy cows can eat 75 - 100 lbs of feed per day. Lactating dairy cows typically eat 50% more than a dry dairy cow.
They can eat wheat but it depends on the farmer if they want to feed cows wheat.
Four general types: Hay, grass, grain and silage.

I am sure that you could, but dairy cows are more valuable to farmers for the milk they produce, not their meat.
Grass, hay and sometimes grain.
Obviously, since humans are half to a third of the size of a bovine, they eat much less per month than either beef or dairy cows do.
They drink milk but at a later age, they eat grass, hay and grain with added vitamins and minerals or just plain grain.
Both (they drink milk there as well as eat beef) but there are more beef cattle.
A bull eats anything that cows eat, including grass, hay, silage, and grain.
Cows eat grass, mate with bulls to produce calves, sleep, eat some more, give milk to feed their calves or to be milked out for human consumption if they're dairy cows, etc.

Please clarify. Dairy and beef are fed 2 COMPLETELY different diets.
There are some dairy foods that Muslims are allowed to eat. They can have milk, yogurt, cheese, and also butter. Typically, as long as the dairy product comes from a halal animal (i.e. cows and goats, not tigers and elephants), the dairy is consumable.
Not really. They eat hay, silage and grain just like any other "normal" cow would. But most of their feed is of higher quality because, as milk producers, they produce lots of milk. Good milk comes from good feed.
There are not really "three things" that cows eat, it's more or less the three types of things cows eat. Cows can only eat one thing: plant matter. The three main types of plant matter they eat are fresh green grass, roughage in the form of hay or silage, and grain.
Mainly dairy foods produced by cows. Goat and sheep dairy products usually cause no reaction.
Depends on how hungry and malnourished they are. If some cows broke into a feed house where grain was stored and they gorged themselves on the grain, they could very much die of bloat and/or acute acidosis.
Same things that other cows from other countries and parts of the world eat: grass, hay, silage and grain. See related question below for more.
No. If a cow eats any dairy products like milk she will get digestive upset including diarrhea since she's no longer suited to consume such products. Cows (and cattle) would rather eat grass, hay, silage and grain over cheese or milk.
A dairy cow should be eating between 1 to 2 percent of her body weight in grain per day. The grain itself should be mixed with other feed like hay and silage to create a more balanced ration for her.
Yes. Nubians are classfied as dairy goats known for their milk quality. They do not have as much meat as a meat goat but any goat can be eatten. Just like Gernesy and holsteins are known as dairy cows while others such a herfords and angus are known as beef cows. This does not mean you can not eat a dairy cow - just less meaty.
Having lived on a dairy for a period of time, I've never seen a cow eat its own poop (aka: cow pie). So no, I don't believe cows eat their own poop.
they eat dairy and maple syrup
Yes. But it should not be a staple of their diet; it should be more of a treat than anything.
Depends on what the grain is: field corn, field peas, feed barley, wheat, etc. If you're just referring to the word "grain" there really is no special name for such grain that is fed to livestock like cattle...just "grain."
They eat about the same. Lactating cows tend to eat 4% of their body weight DM per day, whereas a bull will eat the average of about 2.5% of is body weight DM per day. Since bulls are heavier than cows, the total daily intake is about the same.
Wheat is a plant, a type of grain. Wheat grows in the ground and could be eaten by a cow.
Cows eat them so they can become meat ,dairy foods, bees use them to make .

If a person is a vegetarian it is generally acceptable to eat dairy products including butter from cows. If a person is a vegan, dairy products are usually rejected.
Yes you can. Dairy cows that are no longer able to produce milk on the dairy farm are sold to the auction mart or slaughter houses for more money than beef cows bring at the auction mart. Dairy cows are only able to produce milk for only a few years, and as they get older their milk production ability decreases, as well as health problems such as mastitis and foot rot and other lameness issues… Read More
Cows learn where to go for water, when milking time is (for dairy cows), when it's time to switch to a better pasture (for cows that are being rotationally grazed), what feed and grasses are the best to eat, etc.
Cows eat corn, any grain, alfalfa and clover, and silage (either green corn stalks or other plant that is chopped into small pieces and fermented in a sealed environment).
They like to sample the same kind of food that their mommas eat.
Plants being grasses and forbs.

It is in a total mixed ration (TMR) and when limit-fed; it is also good since commercial dairy cows are selectively bred so that their energy requirements often exceed the best quality forage they can be fed. Corn must be supplied regularly as a supplement to meet such high energy needs from a lactating dairy cow. However, even the small amount of corn they are fed contribute to subacute acidosis simply because the cows eat… Read More
Wisconsin has great soil and the limestone bedrock has calcium which is good for the grass and alfalfa that the cows eat.
