This is a steer we quartered and hung yesterday. Should have done him a year ago by never got round to it.

He is a 3 year old angus x drought master (neighbours bull). Weighted in at 368kg (811 pounds)dressed.
He was finished for about a month on ryegrass, chicory and clover pasture.
Hanging him for a week before butchering.

1600 lb steer running around. From the nice fat covering I guess that he might be marbled pretty nicely. It sounds and looks like you might have done really well for yourself. I'll bet those steaks will be good.

Round steak- one of the leanest cuts was unusually marbled

Making mince for sausages

Haven't managed to cook anything up yet but quickly fried up some of the sausage mince and was juicy and tasty!

The grain added to the alfalfa should get him marbled very good.
This steer looks really great though.
Thanks for sharing buddy.

Just finished him on ryegrass, chicory and clover pasture. Don't really know the ins and outs of getting animals to marble but I'm thinking carbohydrates (grain) would be better than high protein pasture ( alfalfa).
The pasture above that I had him on was high protein, high ME green feed.
