BEEF CATTLE

Market Animal Nutrition

It is important to realize that growing cattle do not always have the same nutritional requirements throughout their entire lives.

  • Cattle should be eating 2-2.5% of their body weight per day, split up into 2 or 3 feedings.
  • Grass hay should be available at all times.
  • Your calves should gain 2-3# per day.

Young Calves

Young calves require a higher protein, lower fat ration (pelleted or textured) to get started on to grain and start developing structure and muscle. (Most receiving rations are between 12-20% Protein)

Formula of Champions feeds that fit these criteria:

Show Calf Creep—T5906FOC

Show Calf Accelerator—T5912FOC

Sale Maker—Pelleted—5914FOC

Growing Calves

Growing calves are typically fed a textured ration around 11-12% protein like 1/3-1/3-1/3 Blend—T5903FOC. This is a good time to start using any supplements for show calves to build muscle, add fat, or increase rib-shape.

Finishing Calves

Finishing cattle require a lower amount of protein (typically 10-11%) and a higher level of fat (3-4%).
