J&D Cattle":3sk1hkb6 said:
I averaged a little over 2lbs/day back in the fall after weaning.
I was feeding 5 lbs per day of a 16% feed mix
Buddy fed the same mix but was closer to 7-8lbs/day and buyers called his fleshy.
Buddy fed 18 lbs more grain per hd per week than J&D. (7.57 lbs vs 5 lbs daily)
18 lbs = 3 lbs more gain divided by 7 days = 0.43 lbs more gain per day
J&D gained a little over 2 lbs/day
So I'd ball park Buddy was a little over 2.5 lbs/day
I'd say 200 lbs in 90 days (2.222 lbs/day) would be a good target to shoot for, depending on cost of available feeds.
