Abstract
A pelleted feed mixture had by weight concentrates 40, straw 30, grass meal 26.7, urea 0.8, monocalcium phosphate 0.5, molasses 1 and NaCl 1%. Young male Black Pied bulls in 3 groups were given a diet with the feed mixture 95% and molasses 5%, or the feed mixture 77, haylage 18 and molasses 5% or the feed mixture 47, haylage 22, fodder yeast 21, beet pulp 5 and straw 5%. Average daily gains were, 1182, 1134 and 1089 g. Carcass yields were 55.7, 54.4 and 54.1% and percentage of meat in carcass was 78.6, 78.1 and 77.8. There was little difference among groups in moisture content of meat. Another pelleted feed with barley 31.8, oats 4.6, wheat bran 22.3, sunflower oilmeal 11.8, grass meal 18.1, urea 1.9, molasses 4.6, NaCl 2.7 and fodder phosphate 2.3% by weight, compared with a loose mixture with barley 50, rye 20, oats 20 and peas 10% gave greater gain of bulls 11 to 12 months old. For that trial, which lasted 178 days, the feed mixtures for both groups made up 30 to 34 and beet pulp 38 to 40% of total nutrients.
