Haha no kidding Jed I Know the feeling. Guy asked why we "put up with" cattle and I just told him we have to haul both cattle and grain to market at least a couple hours one way and a load of cattle is worth way more than a load of corn so might as well feed the corn and haul the cattle!

I spent most of Friday calling around and trying to get feed prices. The place I'm going to buy from has a 14% that the owner feeds. He doesn't implant and has a creep feeder in the pasture averaging 3.2 to 3.6 a day. It seems like the best option.

How much feed were they eating per day or did he not say.
