We decided on 2 different rations. The first being their Show - Stopper ration. This was for the show and sale cattle.
Show-Stopper Texturized Show Cattle Ration TM Show-Stopper® Texturized Show Cattle Ration is a 12.5% protein texturized ration intended to be fed up to 10 kg per head per day. It is a concentrated formula of selected ingredients, containing high levels of quality protein, minerals and vitamins intended to produce a shiny, healthy hair-coat.
The ration that was given to the weaned calves at home was a pelleted ration to grow them out. All of the cattle have done really well on both rations.
This was the good management piece of the story.
The rest of the story is that in November we were attending our first big show of the season and talking with our Nutritionist and feed rep - Doug Roxburgh.
