Wow. That sounds like a lot of wet cob! We fed ours dry cob for quite a
while, but it was a big double handful of dry cob split between the six
sheep dishes. (For seven adults and four lambs). (well, five lambs, but
one refuses to come in to the barn with her mother.) Recently we've
switched to feeding dry peas, which the sheep seem to like, but which are
high protein, so they get even less. And we always offer dry alfalfa with
molasses at feeding time, to supplement our scant grass and the hay.
