The effects of increasing dietary roughage level and slaughter weight on the feedlot performance and carcass characteristics of bulls and steers

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • A serial slaughter experiment is described comparing 45 bulls and 44 implanted steers. Nine of each 'sex' were slaughtered at the start of the trial and the remaining 71 were fed diets containing three roughage levels (20%, 50% and 80% alfalfa-brome hay) to two pen-average slaughter weights (450 kg or 580 kg).
