How many pounds of hay and how many pounds of silage per one hundred pounds live weight can a dairy cow be expected to consume daily when both silage and hay are fed?

About 45 lbs of dry matter and then the grain.

I guess it would depend if it was a Holstien or a Jersey. A little jersey,I would say about 20-25 pounds and 4 pounds or so of grain. Less gain if we were feeding silage. We never ran any holstiens
