What's right to feed? Growing bull & hiefer calves. Currently @ 14% protiene and 1% body weight.(ground corn and soybean meal) Also feeding a lesser amount to nursing cows w/very young calves, is this what's scouring them or making yellow fecies/stool in the newborns?

> Im not sure about the feed part, Im sure someone will help you with that. But newborn calves poop is naturally yellow for a short time.Scours would be extremely loose, and they would act sick. But the yellow is normal.
