5-E Whole cottonseed as a supplemental food for deer is great choice for maintaining the physical health of a deer herd. It is especially effective for improving the body condition of bucks following the rut. Because cottonseed is high in protein and fat it allows post-rut bucks to put weight back on rapidly, meaning more energy is reserved for antler growth which is just a few months down the road.
Feeding cottonseed will increase deer body condition, help improve annual fawn production and allow for increased antler development in bucks, but as a feed it should not be considered a complete ration for whitetail deer. It’s not a one-stop-shop, but whole cottonseed is a great supplement for whitetail.
Offering The Best In CottonSeed Feeding
With a patented (US Patent Office No. D838,642) design that changes the cottonseed feeding game, your purchase of a 5-E Ranch Products Whole Cottonseed Feeder is an easy decision and wise investment.
The CottonSeed Dilemma
Since Texas hunters have realized the value of feeding cottonseed, we’ve done as true Texans do and improvised. Some chicken wire, tomato cages, twine, and stakes did the job well enough for some.
That’s where 5-E Ranch Products said enough was enough.
We got to work finding a better way to serve up the nutrition-packed cottonseed. We all know water ruins cottonseed – sprouting, mildewing, molding, and spoiling. You can end up with a black mess that NO whitetail, let alone a trophy buck, wants to eat. The trick is keeping it off the ground, away from moisture, and still making it easy for feeding and filling.
