Response of steers to dry season protein supplementation on improved pastures



Response of steers to dry season protein supplementation on improved pastures



Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture and Animal Husbandry 17(88): 724-727



In July 1972 in the Northern Territory of Australia, 64 crossbred bullocks were allocated to 8 improved pastures of about 3.8 ha based on Townsville stylo (Stylosanthes humilis), Sabi grass (Urochloa mosambicensis) and annual grasses, mainly Brachiaria pubigera and Digitaria ciliaris, in a tropical monsoon region with mean annual rainfall of 1100 mm, 90% of which falls between November and March. During the dry seasons of 1972-75 bullocks in 4 paddocks were given 0.45 kg meat-and-bone daily.
