Usually cattle can eat 2/1/2 percent of their body weight when on full feed.Grass fed beef doesnt have the tenderness,fat cover or flavor of corn fed beef.With corn at over $.10 cents cattle can eat 25# of grain plus roughage.Too save on cost many use the corn by-products.Cost of gain is over $.80 and if cattle are over $120 per hundred you should still make a profit.Young bulls usually stay leaner and it doesnt cost much to band them. Genetics and the lenght of time on feed play a big difference.Some of the best meat I have eaten came from a dairy animal that had been on full feed since it was young.I have judged many live and carcass shows and you can only give an educated guess what is underneath the skin.I buy many beef for people at our fair and I usually take the fast gainers that are yield grade 2&3 as the are fatter and eat much better than the overfats or underfats. Hamburger can have fat added steaks have to stand alone.I personnaly would take a MacDonalds probably imported Australion[Certified Angus cow beef] burger over a tough steak anyday
