We View Holstein Steers And Holstein Beef Crosses As A Valuable Co-Product To Dairy Production.
When Fed and Managed Correctly They Represent An Excellent Revenue Source For Producers.
Holstein steers represent about 4% of US beef production. To realize full value from these steers one needs to manage them different than a native beef animal. Best Axis has the experience and track record of feeding Dairy Beef animals to achieve the ideal carcass (yield grade 3 and high-choice or better). If environment allows, our clients will finish Dairy Beef animals at around 15 months.
Our dairy beef nutritionists use special formulated pellet supplements that are mixed with whole grains to become a complete feeding program from birth to finishing. For ease of management, forage of any type is often never fed to these animals.
