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.

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.
