Irish Examiner - Farming - - BEEF SECTOR -

Young­stock will of­ten un­der­per­form when for­ages are low in pro­tein ,due to poor in­takes (low pro­teins de­press in­takes).

Make sure you grow them as well as pos­si­ble, it may well be worth your while feed­ing a higher pro­tein ra­tion than you nor­mally do.

Gain­ing weight and frame growth on young an­i­mals is much cheaper than on older ones.

It may be worth­while feed­ing a higher pro­tein ra­tion to young stock.
