Our Cattle enjoying the left over Sweet Riesling Cake

You may remember our Grape Marc post from a while ago, where we talked about feeding our sweet Riesling cake to our cattle. It is the left over Riesling grapes after processing / pressing.

The photo above is our cattle practically running to eat the Riesling cake. They love it! 

'Grape marc' or 'pomace' is the solid remains of grapes after pressing for the wine juice. It contains the skins, pulp, seeds, and stems of the grapes (Wikipedia - Grape Marc). Whilst to most vineyards this is simply waste after processing the juice, we have found it is extremely nutritious for our cattle.

Tell us if you have had any experience with using Grape Marc or Pomace? We love to get your comments!
