well i ended up buying 5 day old braod bronze beasted turkeys today their in the brooder sleeping they told me to butcher them in 20 weeks wich would be end of august correct?
With your feed plan they will not be as big as the feed store was thinking they would be at 20 weeks. i heard of putting a fine layer of fat on them before they get the deed done so i should feed strait cracked corn the last week of life? Nope. That will only cause the to loose weight. If you want to put a fat finish on them keep the protien up and and add dietary fats.i am also going to be feeding them only 20 percent protien for their entire life and they will be free ranging Certainly not enough protein to start them and not enough either to make up for the nutrional dilution the forage causes.
