Subject: How soon to put on feed?


North Central OH

I usually but mid 500 wt. feeders and take around 2 months to get them on a stuffer feeding shelled corn and pellets with 1 to 2 lbs of hay per head per day. I start them with grass hay and 2 to 3 lbs of corn per day trying to grow some frame while getting them use to the all you can eat method. Am I gaining anything doing it this way or would it be better to get them on the stuffer sooner? I only finish about 35 head per year. thanks for input.
