Consistency is key when considering feeding schedules on a feedlot, according to Robbi Pritchard, ruminant nutritionist at South Dakota State University.
It’s been known since the 1920s that when feeding schedules bounce around just 15 minutes from one day to the next, it affects cattle performance, Pritchard said.
