We have 2 bottle calves that are now weaned and about 4 months old. How much grain should they be getting? Second guessing myself are talking to another guy locally. Feeding them about 6 pounds of a 16% mix right now which has corn, soyhulls, distillers grain and protien pellets in the mix with vitamins and mineral added with free choice hay.
