Hello, I just recently found this forum and have found a lot of answers to my questions reading all the older posts. I have a few questions that I wasn’t able to find the answers for about feeding out my steers. I have seven steers ranging from 400 to 800lbs. They are penned up in a feeding area and I want to feed them out as fast as possible. I have access to shelled corn so I would like to feed them out with this. I know to put them on full feed is 1.5% to 2% of there body weight. I don’t have a scale to weigh them so I am just guessing on what they weigh. (Not the best but what else can you do?) That being the case I am feeding them shelled corn at about what I think is 2% of there body weight, and two to three pounds of hay (roughage) per head per day. Here are my questions; the corn is about 7% protein, should I add something to get the protein up to around 12% or 14%? What should I use to do this? I can buy soybean meal at the local elevator and add it to the corn or maybe some kind of pellet? Any thought would be appreciated, also if it looks like I am doing something wrong please let me know what. Thanks for any comments.
