Feed does make all the difference!!!
« on: May 22, 2007, 05:16:38 PM »
So I had posted about my daughters shorty steer not eating like he should and just not looking good, and I was blaming the feed, and I think I was right.  We switched to a feed made in Fort Collins and the steer is back on feed and acting like he has been starved.  Which is good since we are a bit behind at this point. Upon looking at the old feed compared to the new feed the old feed is mostly oats, hardly any corn in it for a finisher.  Just keep your fingers crossed that he starts packing the pounds on instead of looking like a red and white giraffe.

I am still looking into implants for next year when we first get the calf home but I just do not know enough about them to feel comfortable with using them, guess you could call me a chicken!!!  ;D !!!

I agree 100% on the feed! Musty, old smelling feed w/ lots of fines will turn a calf off so fast! i like a fresh feed that smells good enough for me to eat! Hummm, could that be the tummy troubles? Just kidding.
Glad to hear that though!
