calves and corn silage

How old would you start feeding corn silage to steers? My fiance and I are raising steers and wondering what age would be ok to feed corn silage?

Re: calves and corn silage

You might want to move your post to the "cattle page" here we mostly argue how big of socialists that the Democrats are 🙂


But with your steers probably 500, 600 lbs and start them very slowly.  Usually calves are born long after the silage is fed to the cows in the spring.  and the calves are 500lbs when it becomes available in the fall.  But go easy to start with, small amounts.   Good Luck
