How much feed do you think a cow will need per day? If you want to store feed through the dry season, how do you know how much feed will be enof for them? Thanks buddies.

From what I have read so far, cows or cattle in general will eat 2-4% of their body weight in feed. So a 100kg cow will eat 2-4 kg feed everyday. The higher the feed quality, the more they'll eat.
