Apple Treats

Chopped apples used as feed for young black angus calves.The young calves in the show barn are getting daily rations of chopped apples to add nutrition and natural energy to their hay and grass screening pellets.

These two calves have already been weaned from mothers milk and the apples are a great way to keep them interested in feeding schedules and eating.

We have only been doing this the last two weeks and already these calves stand in their feeding spots and watch as the apples are cut and distributed before diving into their dinner.

They are becoming more vocal about how much time it takes to get the apples to them, or beg for just a few more after the portion is gone.
