Google, beef cattle thaivisa .com, they are some threads they that should answer your question .

As for the cost of bringing them to market weight sooner ........how long is a piece of string.

If you are just feeding a say 12 % protein  feed and your low  feed  quality long grass it will cost not a lot but it will take a long time 

But if you feed some good quality grass, and a 14-16% concentrate ,they will fatten quicker but your costs will be higher .

You can get nuts/pellets feed here but expensive ,use the  powdered feed ,Ahan-Per-Som in Thai .I am paying 7 baht/kg for a 14% concentrate.
