weaning weights

I weaned calves in October that right off the cow averaged 450 to 500 pounds. I kept two steers to fatten out. Long story short, I sold those two steers today, and they weighed 450 and 525 pounds. For the last three months they have been getting 50 pounds of silage two times a day. They did not gain any weight in three months. I am also subsidizing with brome hay. I have proven bulls and good momma cows. How can I improve my weaning weights or utilize my forage to get bigger calves? I know of cattle with less forage or no forage at all that produce bigger weaned calves.

Refrigerate Cream Cheese Cookies?

I made cream cream cheese cookies, it has a graham cracker crust like cookie with a dimple in it and then filled with a filling containing cream chees, egg yoke, vanilla, and sugar and then baked. The only information I could that seemed relevant was in regards to a recipe where the cream cheese was in the cookie itself, not in a almost gelatin like filling. I'm not sure if these need to be refrigerated. I would like to ship some to a relative but I'm not if that's a good idea.

Tomatoes out in the cold

I planted my tomatoes very early this year in the hopes of getting an early harvest. We have not had a frost or freezing temperatures, but have had a few nights in the high 30s lower 40s. My question is, can young plants be stunted even if there is no freeze or frost to do them in?

Hello, I just recently noticed my black oak tree leaves are starting to turn hard and shrivel up, but they do not fall off. This is not localized to one or a few branches, it appears all over the tree as far as I can tell. Generally speaking the tree looks healthy.

Brown spots, yellow leaves on willow

I have a recently (about 3 months ago) planted curly willow that has a handful of leaves with brown spots, which then turn yellow. The tree has grown quite a bit and has a lot of healthy growth but if this is a problem I want to tackle it sooner rather than later.

Is this Oregano?

neighbor says this is Mexican oregano from a live plant she brought back from Mexico. I disagree, but do think it is SOME kind of oregano, judging by the scent. Can you identify?
