Beef Cattle • Backgrounder/ Stocker

Growing out young/lightweight cattle for feedlot finishing

Commercial Backgrounder/Stocker

Cow/calf operators with extra pasture often keep their calves after weaning and “background” them to sell as yearlings for the feedlot. Others buy calves to background on pasture. All calves on grass lack the energy necessary to make efficient gains and often are short on protein as well. Supplementing growing cattle on pasture can be accomplished by hand-feeding grain and supplement in a bunk; hand-feeding cubes; or offering a self-limiting diet in a self-feeder. When raising cattle is your livelihood, discover the Kent brand difference!
