If you’re feeding them a few lbs of corn already, turn them out without worry unless there’s a big spilled pile out there. We go right from grass to stalks with no problems.
On the protein, they’ll likely be fine without supplement for a awhile. A few lbs of alfalfa per head per day or every few days will help them get more good out of the stalks but they won’t need it until they’ve picked them over some or get in the last half to third of gestation.
