  1. They eat everything, not only the grass in the fields but also the rope that keeps the fence closed, the hose that feeds their drinking supply and the electrical system of the tractor ( while I was busy rescueing one off them that fell in a ditch filled with water.) Thougt that they had a lack of minerals but they have the possibilty to lick minerals all day from several big buckets in the pasture but still they eat eat and lick everything.

    • Yeah, I thought the same about a mineral deficiency, but it seems like its just their nature – We had a barn with wooden beams and they chew on them. They even chew and suck on the metal pipes of the fences. You can see a video on my youtube channel

      • We start building a new barn in october. Think I will pay extra attention to the things they can chew on like for example milkrobots.
