I am having a conversation with a family that has been in the beef project for 2 years now. Their calf has only gained 100#'s in the last 104 days. At this rate they will not make weight for their fair which starts July 23. She is feeding this calf 37 pounds of grain at night(29#s grain and 8#'s of steamed flake corn plus 4 oz of corn oil) he cleans it up within 45 min. She feeds him hay in the morning. The calf weighs 875#'s. Can you feed to much grain and have the animal stop gaining like he should? Is less really more? How does that work? They wormed 30 days ago, the calf is not sick he eats everything they give him. They are going to start upping his grain every 5 days by 1#, I am trying to talk them out of it. But she thinks that it is working. I did talk them out of jackpotting him. Any ideas?
