We typically raise sudangrass with winter triticale and a few other species to graze our replacements on during the winter. This winter we ran calves alongside the replacements after weaning. It was pretty cheap wintering for the calves. Just judging by the way they look, as I haven't run them across the scale this spring, I would guess their gain at about 1.5lbs/day.
