SDS Week 3

on March 13, 2016

This week, I focused on the nutrition aspects for both my steer and heifer, more specifically vitamins and minerals. Proper nutrition is vital for the growth and development of cattle. In beef cattle, energy rations are crucial for lactation, reproduction, movement, and feed digestion. One way they consume this energy is protein, protein is the base of the body’s growth. Minerals are also an important aspect to maintaining nutritious health.

Interesting fact: a cow’s stomach is 4 times bigger than an average human stomach!
