I wouldn't feed out a cow. Maybe a heifer, but I'd prefer a steer.

Stay away from yearlings, as they may weigh as much as 900 pounds.

Eight to nine month old calves, if you really want high end marbled beef, works out about right.

Don't overfeed, as you surely don't want any young YG4.

Just enough roughage to cut down on the runs, from excess protein consumption.

Feed 'em out to around 1100-1200 pounds, for an English breed ....

Old breed Angus may be ready for slaughter around 1000 pounds, or less.

The newer genetics have 'em a little larger and they may be fed to around the same weight as a Hereford.

The amount of the stimulus check isn't really going to help.

There are so many small businesses that may never get back up and running, following many state's lengthy totalitarian fascist "lockdowns".

Just glad to be on the "Back Nine of Life".
