Price of beef for live weight basis is 150/kg.

To prepare a TMR for beef calves, the TMR should have 17% CP, oil- 4%, Crude fibre 13%, ME-13.2 MJ/kg DM, Mag-0.4%, Ca-1.2%, P-0.6%, Zn-700 mg, Mn-165 mg, I-60 mg, Co-60 mg, Se-6 mg, Vit. A- 60000 IU/kg, Vit. D3-12000 IU/kg, E- 100 IU/kg, B1-50 mg/kg and B12-125 mg/kg

Please do not forget to add yeast metabolite Diamond V XP for further rumen development and Yucca schidigera extract.

Dear Usama,

To make it more economical, I will suggest you rather to achieve 17% C.P in TMR in Pakistan the cost of per KG TMR will go up to Rs.29 and your ration will also need high quality roughage. So Ican suggest you to make it up to 15% CP. as Beef animal can eat 10% more ADF as compared to Dairy ration so you can can more wheat straw to make it more economical for your farm. Do add any IONOPHORE that will increase feed efficiency and result in more weight gains. DO select good breeds and age.
