Does anyone have any tips for putting a fat cover on steers ?

He is already eating rice bran but he just needs a boost with muscle and fat , we have tried heavy weight and he will not eat it , any tip helps!


Try a combination of range fee with sugar-beet pulp and alfalfa. That should put the weight on

I use a sugar-beet pulp / oat / alfalfa mix as finish feed. Gives me a 5-7% better yield on average. This is with shorthorn-hereford MP cross.

Does Not Play Well With Others

Try a mixture of blackstrap molasse and oatmeal


I can see why this is under diet and fitness. Let's see. You need my help in fattening up a steer so you can butcher it? I'd try someone else who is into farming animals.
