Showmaster grower or developer for heifers
« on: January 22, 2010, 08:41:04 PM »
Which one do you prefer for heifers and why? Does one get them fatter quicker?  What about keeping them fresh looking? Does one keep a fuller look than the other?

We've used both. The Heifer Developer has less corn, more filler. Both are good rations.  I would base the one I use on your heifers particular needs. The grower only has like 540#'s of corn per ton. I don't think that's too much for any heifer. If you are in an area that it's cold, I would probably add a little more corn myself. We are feeding 4 different heifers for show right now and they all 4 get different rations. I feed them based on what I think is the best for each calf to reach it's best potential. We have a base ration mixed at the mill, similar to the grower, then I change it  and remix it here at home for each calf. Hope this helps.

We use the developer because of the fiber content in it.  Just started adding some corn and barley to it though.
