Where can I find info on custom rations. I have created some but the numbers are very vague. What numbers are best for say bulls, cows, and steers?

Bulls and cows need to be on PSM for accurate 40 day muscle stats.For steers I always maxed muscle and growth out on my custom ration and adjusted the fat levels to take from or add to the conditioning.

Ok. That's exactly what I do now. However, I always find that my steer's muscle is lower than my show cows and bulls that I have maxed out on everything and was wondering if adjusting the fat had something to do with that.

I'm not sure I have never had that problem with the steers muscle. And I don't know why I replied on a trial account yesterday.

Haha. Ok thanks. It might just be that those I choose to castrate turn out to have smaller muscle. I haven't had a large enough sample to know yet. However, you can look at my show string and see that it is true.
