I was feeding 50 pounds of 14% protein feed to 7 calves wich boils down to about 7 pounds per day /head..... so .0028% protein in a pound times 7 is .0196 pounds of protein per day/head...... 40% feed is .008 pound of protein per pound so .0196 divided by .008 equals 2.45.... so i would need 2.45 pounds of 40% to equal 7 pounds of 14%......just wanted to see if this would be correct.

And btw the calves are grazing rye and local grass about how many pounds of 14% should i feed per day to get them to gain a good bit of weight....or is 7 adequate?

Thanks in advance
