Supplementation at grass

Where supplementation is not taking place for forward cattle, consider it. In autumn, the energy content of grass reduces. Combined with low grass dry matter and a quicker passage of grass through cattle, this can have an impact on thrive. Early spring-born weanlings should be offered 1-2kg ration/day for heifers and 2-3kg/day for bulls, especially if weanlings are being sold as the extra weight gain will cover the costs of creep feeding.
