Keep these things in mind as you feed show calves:
Full feed along with 3.0 pounds hay per day. When on full feed, cattle should eat at least 3% of body weight. If cattle are not used to grain, start feeding a small amount and gradually work up to full feed over a 3-week period. For optimum health and performance, the full feed period should not be longer than 150 days. Keep an ample amount of fresh, clean water before animals at all times.
