Feeding bulls with Jim & crew at Felton Angus Ranch. Check out the bull ration in real time. See each portion of the bull feed as it goes into the mixer. See first hand how Felton Angus Ranch feeds tough, athletic bulls with good feet that are ready to go to work for you.
The way a bull is fed will dictate his longevity out on the range. We don’t want a real fat bull here at the ranch. Fat bulls don’t work for us and they won’t work for you. We’ve bought fat bulls and learned that they do not get out and cover cows.
We’ve dialed in our bull ration to feed athletic, tough bulls ready to go to work for you.
The major part of our ration in the bull lots is roughage. Ground hay (grass/alfalfa) is the biggest input. We put long hay in our vertical mixer and grind it. Then add alfalfa haylage, corn silage, DDG (dried distiller’s grain), corn and a mineral pack.
We have our nutritionist formulate the ration. All the forages are tested and home grown. Cattle are fed twice a day.
Home raised healthy ration that cattle do great on.
