Burenda Angus & Brangus entered seven Burenda Angus cross Santa steers into the RNA Paddock to Palate feedlot competition this year. The steers entered Grassdale Feedlot at an average entry weight of 456kg and a spread of 428 - 480kg.
We have just received the 50 day weights and we have an average of 590kg and a spread of 538 - 626kg and an average daily weight gain so far of 2.73kg/day. This places us around 20th on weight gain out of about 52 entries.
The top weight gaining pen have done 3.42kg/day. As our first attempt at this we are very happy with it so far. View this space around late June for the final weigh in and gains.
