Cotton seed

Considering a supplemental cotton seed program in our lease. Would like to hear some pros and cons from those who have gone this route. TIA

it will make bucks sterile so don’t feed later in the year. I’m not sure how long to let it flush out of their system

It works, more popular in Texas where they have to feed due to drought, soil type...

As mentioned it lowers testosterone levels so you have to taper off around September, but it’s a great feed that’s more affordable and high in protein.

I asked a biologist from the UGA deer lab that very question and he said if it were the only source of food then becoming sterile might be an issue but since they have other sources of food it wouldn't be a problem.
