Be consistent in your feeding.
Both time of day and quantity of feed are critical. Always feed your cattle at the same time every day or within 30 minutes of your target time. If you get to feeding cattle when you want to, they get to eating when they want to.
Providing consistent access to clean, fresh water at all times is also critical. Water drives feed intake, so making sure your animals are drinking is important, especially in hot summer months.
