Thoughts on this feed?

Post by jwimberly » Mon Dec 24, 2018 6:28 am

What's your thoughts on this feed for taking 400# calves to 650# by May? I have cheap but lower quality hay fed free choice with it. In comparison to their other feeds its moderate in energy. $228/ton with the rumensin and I think $195/ton without. I've fed them about 4# per head the last couple days when should I take them up to 2% BW?

With 20% fiber you should get them up to full feed over the next 2 weeks.
You could shop around and probably find something with less fiber and more corn, cheaper.

“Almost” cannot avail;
“Almost” is but to fail!
Sad, sad that bitter wail—
“Almost—but lost!”
