* FEEDING BEEF CATTLE. *
* Clemson Extension Work-Ar- *
* tide 7.*
* * * * * * * * * * * *
Can we, with economy, feed beef
cattle in this State? Can we feed
cattle for market and at least get the
manure for our trouble? Can we
feed beeves at a profit?
We are often asked these questions
and a brief summary of results of
feeding a lot of about 30 may be of
interest as by this means we can
present facts and not guess work.
This lot we began to feed on No
vember 13 and it consisted of a mix
ed bunch of steers and heifers, nearly
half of each.
By February 26 they had gained 5.
896 pounds, or a gain of 218 pounds
each, averaging a little mo . than
14 1-2 pounds per head per week.
This, as any feeder knows, is a
very good gain and was particularly
good in this instance, as they were a
mixed lot of mountain cattle, obtained
locally, and of a rather low average
In this time they consumed 105,600
pounds silage and 21,162 1-2 pounds
cotton seed meal, or an average of 37
pounds silage and 7 1-2 pounds meal
per head per day.
If silage is valued at, $3.00 per ton
and -meal at $30.00 per ton, then these
steers cost to faed at rate of 17 1-4
cents per day. To offset ,the cost of
the feed we obtained the gain of
14 S-15 pounds per week, the manure,
and the increase of value to the whole
animal that 'comes from the added
In some sections it is expected to
sell the animal for at least 1 cent per
pound more when fattened than they
cost when thin. Using these figures,
let us see how our account would

weeks, at $3 per ton ....$ 158.00

Weight at start was 22,850 pounds.
At 3 1-2 cents per pound, the amount
Swould be $799.75.
The gain was 5,896 pounds, making
the selling weight 28,746 pounds. If
sold at a gain of 1 cent per pound

'Cost .of food as above.. .. ..$ 475.00
Selling price above all cost.. $ 20.42
Selling price is only a'n estimate as
the above cattle were for our own
use hence not sold, but the lesson re
mains just the same.
Under favorable circumstances
this indicates that cattle may be fed
for beef and the manure obtained for
If the cattle were fed at seasons
when meal is lower in price the
showing would be better. The silage
too, may usually be grown for less
than $3 per ton and in that case it
would be so much to the advantage of
The foregoing shows that this in
dustry may be profitable as an aid in
building up the farm, but we must
present the following cautions,' and
would suggest the desirabilty of fat
tening only a few, say a car lot, the
first time and let the business grow,
as one becomes accustomed to all
the conditions to be met.
If cattle are brought from a dis
- tance, study the freight rites and see
If that may prohibit the enterprise.
In buying be careful they are not'
weighed just after receiving food and

Wish to sell, will take heifers, or if it
pays better for steers, and act accord
If heifers are bought, get spayed
ones if possible, or if not then such
as are not bred, or at least that are
not far advanced in pregnancy.
Buy local cattle if possible, and
save not only freight, but the shrink-'
age caused by shipping, these often
being very serious drawbacks to the

enough to satisfy the market. When
cattle are nearly firiished, the cost of

and yet get them at low prices and
