To ensure a healthy breeding bull, feed enough energy and protein.

Young bulls are still growing, so they need adequate energy and protein to supply their needs for growth, as well as maintenance, body condition and body heat on a cold winter day. According to John McKinnon, professor and Saskatchewan beef industry chair at the University of Saskatchewan, a bull’s nutrient requirements during winter depend a lot on his age, body condition after coming off pasture and what your target weight is for that bull for the next breeding season.
