Finally, be patient. It may take some time for your cattle to reach a 2.5 fat score, and that's ok. Just keep working hard, and you'll eventually get there.

By following these tips, you should be able to get your cattle to a 2.5 fat score. Just remember to be patient and to keep an eye on their health and weight. With a little hard work, you can get your cattle to the perfect weight.
