I've got a couple of angus cross steers..on good pasture, but I'm supplementing them w/ some inexpensive processed soy hulls. These guys are about 650 pounds. I'm struggling w/ how much to feed them as they get bigger. Right now I give them 5lbs of feed each once per day. Too much? Too little? I'm going to sell these steers in Feb or Mar. Thanks!

I feed my steers 6lbs of All Stock a day & now 2 bails of hay (because of cold weahter). I feed half in the morning & the other half at night. My steers in the past have averaged 75 to a 100lbs a mounth for the first year. After that they seem to taper off a little. I dont know if its rite but thats what I feed.
