Picky Steer Eater
« on: October 28, 2013, 11:32:40 PM »
Ok we are about to pull out hair out trying to get this calf to eat consistently.  We have tried everything from Liquafat, Glu-coat, and now we are cooking his corn nightly and adding molasses to his ration.  He will nearly clean up his feed in the night feeding the first day he has a new version of the ration offered to him.  Then every feeding after that he slowly backs off. He will consistently eat about 16-17 pounds however we have roughly 97 days until the show and need about 250 more pounds on the big guy!  We want him eating between 25-30 pounds to be able  to get finished.   Do y'all have any advice out there, tricks or anything else we could try to get this calf to turn on his appetite. Oh and we are using a Vita-charge liquid and paste to increase his appetite.
