I am trying to find feed rate information for Dairy steers for County Fair. I have found information on expected rate of gain, but looking for how much feed should be needed per day or per pound of animal weight.
Perry County Ohio
While there are multiple factors to consider, it's difficult to give a set answer to this question. There is a fairly good chart covering feeding plans in the Ohio 4-H Beef Resource Handbook on page 11-17...I would encourage you to check it out. We have copies available at our office if you do not presently have one. Our Ag Educator also shares some links below from other sources that may provide helpful information.
