The answer I have for you may not be the answer you want.


Bread is really not a good source of energy for a cow, especially a growing or pregnant cow.

It's OK if bread makes up a small portion of the cow's diet, but the bulk of the cow's diet should be hay.

Your cow will be healthier on a diet of good quality hay.
