What are some of you guys feeding after the first 40 days, like what's your custom rations mix

I Just go with 100x100x100. Cause its free. Unless I'm feeding steers.. then I use the 100x100x15 or 5 depending on how fat they like to get, to control their weight.

No idea what the others go with.

When feeding my prospects and show cattle I feed PSM until their done showing or until they reach 40 days. After that I put them on Open Range. My commercial herd and feedlot are fed Open Range as well. Show Steers I feed are given 100/100/25 I may go lower on the 25 depending on the weight of the steer.

My prospects are fed PSM from 0-40 days.
After 40 days are recorded, all keepers are put on Open Range.

My show steers are put on 100/100/varying fat rations, depending on their condition.

Feedlot and recips are fed 100/100/100 custom, because they aren't used for breeding. This ensures I get maximum weight for slaughtering. (Open Range gives the least weight gain)

just curious, but why do you guys feed open range, when customs are free? you could just put them all on 100x100x100 after 40 days...?

I choose not to feed any of my breeding animals customs, to avoid confusion. So, they get Open range after 40 days.
