Liveweight change, grazing time of steers and effect of pasture height on liveweight change following periods of hand feeding

Liveweight change, grazing time of steers and effect of pasture height on liveweight change following periods of hand feeding

Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture and Animal Husbandry 15(75): 440-445

Weaned Hereford bullocks of average liveweight 280 kg were in 2 groups of 10. One group was on pasture, in Victoria, for 20 weeks and the other had good hay to appetite in a yard for the same period. At the end of that time the bullocks on pasture had gained 24 kg more. All the bullocks then grazed spring pasture for 6 weeks, and were continuously observed and weighed weekly.
