Jed, do you just feed that to get them through the winter, or do you keep supplementing after grass gets here? I like to rough a 5 wt through the winter and sell a big summer yearling, but I taper them off feed just as soon as grass gets here in March or April. Wondering how you do yours, because I'm always up for learning something.
I expect my environment is similar to yours. I can get some good gains on grass through June, but they really need to be gone by the middle of July or else they get stale. I keep them longer sometimes, but they don't do much from the middle of July through August except stand around in ponds and lay in the shade. When I do keep them past the middle of July, I frequently have to start caking them again just to keep them going until it cools off and we start getting rain again.
