Crude protein percentage of the diet and liveweight change of steers on improved pastures



Crude protein percentage of the diet and liveweight change of steers on improved pastures



Journal of the Australian Institute of Agricultural Science 25(4): 267-268



In grazing trials 160 km S. of Darwin, Northern Territory the effect of meat and bonemeal supplementation on the liveweight gain of cattle grazing Stylosanthes humilis/Urochloa mosambicensis pastures was studied. Determinations of botanical composition and DM availability together with observations on grazing behaviour provided an indication of the diet of each group of cattle. There was a linear relationship between liveweight gain and CP intake.
