Re: Holstein steers

T the problem with a self feeder is that you can not ad in DDG's without serious sorting.  IF you are committed to this style of feeding then the best thing to do is to use good management practices that keep the feeder full and good water always available. You need to do things that make them efficient.

If you can feed silage as well you will find that they grow equally as fast and that they stay fuller.
