getting young calves ready for internet sale PICTURE DAY!!!!
« on: September 10, 2013, 09:29:46 AM »
Sunday I went out looking at calves that are going to be on an internet sale and I was watching them get pictured at a couple places.  I never had any calves or anything get pictured so I was curious after watching and looking at many calves.

What do these farms or other places feed to the young calves to get them to explode or look that full?  There has to be a additive or something?  I have seen calves at a couple other places that are very closely related genetically and they don't even look close to each other.

Just wondering and always like to learn new things.  THANKS!

I know many guys feed precon the whole time and its pricey but it gives that really full look and condition. Plus those good calves have probably been on feed since day one where others could be fed more traditionally and are just greener.

Precon. Best product ever. Creep feed it all the way up to sale time. I know some guys in Indiana here feed it, Garwood an Soehnlen in eastern Ohio feed it too, they love it. Don't have to feed since day one that's a waste. Start feeding it in with another feed around 50 days old.....
