10 pounds of 20's twice a day for 30 to 60 days would do him some good.
How many cows he got to cover?
Have u examined his mouth?
He’s on 20 but most are calving Or heavy bred so I might try to pen him this weekend and feed him. Would you suggest feed or cubes?
That's what we use is 20 percent cubes. Sometimes a guys limited by what he can get at the time.
Hes probly went thru a growth spurt and been working hard trying to find something to do if everyone is bred.
I bet by 60 days hes in good shape and maybe everyone will be ready to breed by then.
Good excuse to try n tighten the ol calving schedule...

I wouldn’t feed him cubes. Try to find a good commodity feed from a feed store. I would try to stay around 14%. It’ll make him grow more and be quite a bit cheaper. If you have a place to keep a super sack you can get a ton from Sulphur Springs for around $225. One thing I do with my bulls is to put the mineral feeder, feed, trough and hay ring at different ends of their pasture to make them walk. Bulls are lazy and you want him to be big but not fat.
Good advice there as well.
