Do you mind putting your general location on your profile? You just got advice from STX through the Dakatos and on to Oregon and as you can tell, is varies significantly by area.
Be a lot easier to answer your questions more accurately, if you would go back and put your location ion your profile. @Marie , can you not make that a mandatory field on the sign up page? Make it to where you can't proceed til you fill in that field?
I don't know what the mix is. B gets it. It comes out of Caldwell ID. I don't remember the company or the man's name. The side of the truck says XYZ Energy feed. The calves haven't been fighting over it that is for sure. Other than that they have green irrigated hay field regrowth which is about 12-15 inches tall and a bale of grass hay in the corral which some of them nibble on. Salt and loose minerals. They are in about a big 10 acre field. 106 of them have been out there for 11 days. They just about have that one grazed off. In a day or 2 they will move to a 17 acre field with more grass.Do you use something similar to mix 30? It is 16% protein and 10% fat. What else do they get, just hay/grass?
@Warren Allison has a point. 95% of the questions/statements posted have a location dependent answer. This one for instance, if you live east of the Mississippi River, you don't need supplemental protein in any form even when being fed medicore hay. West of the Mississippi, supplement needs are dependent upon hay analysis, and probably needed.
