Influence of feeding rice straw and urea supplement with whole and ground corn on feedlot performance, rate of passage and digestibility by steers

Influence of feeding rice straw and urea supplement with whole and ground corn on feedlot performance, rate of passage and digestibility by steers

Journal of Animal Science 41(4): 1180-1188

Diets with whole or ground maize, with or without 1.2 to 1.5% urea and 20 or 60% ground rice straw, were given to beef bullocks. In experiment 1, 48 Herefords 16 months old, given diethylstilboestrol by implant, were divided among 6 diets given to appetite. Diets 1 to 3 were whole maize, 2 included 1.5% urea and 3 included urea and 20% rice straw. Diets 4 to 6 were ground maize, 5 including 1.5% urea and 6 including urea and 20% rice straw.
