I want to put some weight on a thin 3yr old. She is on dry and wet hay. As a 2yr old she had grain all summer but she put it all into the calf, the calf was 900lbs @ 7months.

Good luck<p>Thanks for the advice. She cycled 1 month after calving, and the calf is doing great. We'll probably breed her in 3weeks. All she does is eat but it seems to go straight to her udder.<p>
