OhShOwEr said:I would take her off the daily ration of Full tank as well, you are taking up space that you could be filling with grains to get her finished!!

If your wanting weight you probably cant beat adding corn to her diet, but just make sure that you dont get her overly fat. Also make sure that she is on a high quality (mineral preferably chelated if you can get it,) such as Cargill/Nutrena or something on this line. I used Cargill Onyx last year and had great results but any high quality mineral should help her greatly. Also watch her hay intake as she could be getting too much hay which is filling her up and not allowing much weight gain.
