The white bar is the hunger bar, it will go down over time until the cow is hungry enough to eat. If, at that point, the cow does not have access to the food it will "starve" and the red bar will go down a bit. As the red bar goes down, the quality of the products derived from that cow will also go down. On the other hand, if at that point the cow has access to food it will eat it and the white bar will refill. The white bar is a timer letting you know how close your cow is to needing feeding, the red bar tells you whether your cow has actually starved.
Our cattle are all very well fed.
If our cows were eating grass instead of fodder that would account for the low quality milk, however no patches of grass are missing from their pasture and the quality of their fodder eaten remains high. And yet, poor little "Dots" continues to give consistently q11 milk. Weird. I'll just keep her around for a while because of her high stats that she may pass on to a calf, then cull her when I have an appropriate replacement for her. I think she must just be bugged. Thanks again for your help.
