The little ones get some creep feed for a treat and the big ones get cake. Altho the littles ones are starting to like cake too.

I will have to watch some more YouTube on finishing them. They are definitely fat already. I have all the meat spoken for and all to proceeds are going to my nephews first year in college. I'm really hopefully they turn out good and I'm almost feeding my entire family.

Pics are on the way :)

If those are cattle/hog panels should be about 50 inch fence/corral.
Hard to guess weight by photos.
They look very nice tho!
Crossbred for high bread vinegar....

If you are feeding a 5x5 bale, then I would say the herefords are in the 8 wt range. It is really hard to tell by pictures. Little ones will weigh in the 3's probably
