Ideal Finish Weight
« on: April 17, 2010, 12:33:28 PM »
What would be your ideal finish weight in this calf. Also do you think that he will have problems growing. He weighs 820 now and we sell the end of september. I'm just really worried about his frame being to small. And if you think that he will be to small is there anything that I can give him to help boost his frame. Sorry if all this sounds dumb. Thanks though Oh and in the pictures are from the end of jan where he weighed about 700lbs

I'd be careful what are his genetics?

My guess is that that steer will finish out at about 1250- 1300 and no more than that he looks to be a pretty good boned fella tho so sometimes it just takes time to get the full volume of the steer ya never know he could grow a lot more and actually be bigger framed its all in the genetics what is he?

This makes me feel alot better. I was just really worried he would be too small. By the way he is an Eyes on the Money crossed with a shorthorn (mgs was MSF Equity) Thanks for all your help.
