I have about 30 calves that are 400-500 pounds and I would like to hang on to them till next spring. I have never kept them this long past weaning and I am wondering if anyone has any ideas on a feed program. My idea is to keep hay free choice and try feeding them 3% of there body weight of corn gluten and soybean hull pellets per day. Is this what I need to be doing, or is there something I could do that would be more cost effective? I would put them on wheat pasture, but it has not rained for the past two months.
