Introduce Calf Meal to younger cattle at one month of age to promote healthy early eating and human growth. Feeding cattle during the final months of pregnancy will result in higher milk production as the body will be preparing for pregnancy. Feed as much as is needed to prevent wasting. Never feed less than is needed to promote adequate forage and healthy pasture. Never feed more than 1.5 pounds per acre per day of Calf Meal.
How I Improved My Feeding Young Calf Meal To Weaned Cattle To Promote Growth And Proper Weight Loss
Once the pregnancy has ended, give all rump the same amount of daily feed, but no more than the daily requirement. Continue to feed the young, healthy animals with a high-energy ration only. Do not over-feed or under-feed calves or they will become too weak and undernourished. Calf Meal is best used as a dry matter but should never be given wet or damp soil.
For lactation ewes or for weaning calves, feeding them a diet that contains 80% crude protein, along with adequate dry matter, should support rapid growth rates and proper weight gains. Adding some simple wheat grits to their diets will also help to improve their growth rates. Young ewes and calves that are nearing weaning are best fed a high-energy, dry diet comprised of grits, vegetables and calves meal to promote rapid growth rates and maximize protein stores. When in doubt, always consult your vet for the correct ration for your breed and age of your cattle.
