How much protien should a fat calf have a day for ideal health and growth?

The protien requirements decrease with size. A 500 pound weaned calf will use 12% of his diet in protien or about 1.8 pounds a day of protien.<p>That same calf at 1000 pounds only needs 10% of his diet as protien but its about 3 pounds of protien a day.<p>Jason Trowbridge<br>Southern Angus Farms<br>Alberta Canada<br>
