Steer Fattening with milk or other products : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

My son is getting a steer for an FFA project on Wednesday. He has been told by others that have raised champions before to feed him with milk products such as sweetened milk or ensure. This sounds bizarre to me, can anyone help?

When we were farming full time we fattened many a steer and many a pig on waste milk (ie. cell count too high for the bulk tank, etc.) They'll fatten just fine with this addition to their diet. However if you have to buy the milk in little cans over the counter, this is not cost effective.
