    so i'm keeping track of my market wethers (2)

    here's what i have so far....

    Yahoo:
    Date 3-30-09 weight: 20lbs,
    Date 4-12-09 weight: 33lbs, Days since last weigh: 12, Gain: 13lb, Gain per Day: 1.08 lb
    Date 4-22-09 weight: 44lbs, Days since last weigh: 10, Gain: 11lb, Gain per Day: 1.1 lbs

    Dancer:
    Date 3-30-09 weight: 18lbs
    Date 4-12-09 weight: 30lbs, Days since last weigh: 12, Gain: 12lbs, Gain per Day: 1lb
    Date 4-22-09 weight: 37lbs, Days since last weigh: 10, Gain: 7lbs, Gain per Day: .7lbs

    does it look "off" to anyone?, I weighed them with a hanging scale, they've been getting free choice timothy hay, and grain 2x a day, I try to keep it availiable at all times, between 2nd and third weigh they got castrated...they were born on Jan. 15th 2009.
    thanks.!

    these are nubian with a 'hint' lol, of boer, but mostly nubian..

    theyre getting free choice hay and grain 2x.

    idk maybe it just seems unrealistic to be gainging a lb per day...

    yea.. a pound a day is pushing it.. but they should easily gain over .6 easy.. even for nubies..

    maybe up the grain
