Beef Cattle & Show Calf Feeds

Beef Cattle & Show Calf Feeds

  • Our Cattle and Show Calf Feeding Programs are different: Most companies formulate cattle feeds based on being able to sell them at a low price. We formulate feed that will allow animals to reach their genetic potential. This means feeds that are fortified above NRC and traditional levels. Highly digestible ingredients are all we use, no cheap fillers, and no least cost formulation!

  • Optimum Vitamin & Trace Mineral Levels: Our higher levels of vitamins (especially A & E) along with balanced trace elements, like zinc, improve skin and hair coat. Typically, our feeds contain 1.5 times the level Vit. A of other feeds!

  • Our Show Calf Feeds Stay Fresh Longer, Uniform Texture, More Palatable: Our feeds are formulated to have less dry-out than competitors. Calves hair coats are full and shiny. With added mold inhibitors, we have an exceptionally low incidence of moldy feed even during the hottest summers. Our superior quality and unique blend of ingredients, as well as our quality control, result in consistent and palatable rations. Calves do not experience off-feed times as they do with the competitor’s feeds.

  • Proper Fiber Levels & Highly Digestible: We have balanced rations with the right amount of Fat, Fiber, TDN, etc. Unlike many competitors, we use the right amounts of Cottonseed Hulls in our Show Calf Feeds. Too much fiber results in low gains, poor hair coat, and high feed cost due to poor feed conversion. Too little fiber produces off-feed times and an unbalanced rumen PH.


'Our Moderate Fiber/ Energy Formula'

This is an intermediate fiber and energy texturized feed, perfectly suited for Heifers and Steers in many show calf feeding situations. Show Calf 4000 is used to start calves on, fed to heifers all the way through, and fed to Steer's when you want moderate gain without too much cover.

Steer’s are often started on ‘4000’ ; then go to '5000' for fast gain and development– then back to '4000' to hold them at a desired show weight. Show Calf 4000 contains steam rolled corn, cracked corn, barley, crimped oats, cottonseed hulls, pelleted supplement, liquid supplement, and liquid molasses.

'Our Fast Gain/Extra Condition Formula'

This texturized feed is higher in energy and lower in fiber than Show Calf 4000. Use Show Calf 5000 when calves need very fast gains and extra cover. Feed to steers after they have been started on feed. Show Calf 5000 can also be fed to heifers which need extra weight gain and cover.

Show Calf 5000 is a higher energy feed which produces a faster gain, it can also put down more cover (if desired) by feeding at a high level. Show Calf 5000 contains steam rolled corn, cracked corn, barley, crimped oats, cottonseed hulls, pelleted supplement, liquid supplement, and liquid molasses.
