Black-and-White Lowland bulls in 2 groups of 36 were fed from 140 to 400 kg body weight on a diet of green forage or maize silage, concentrates and barley straw, 1.4 to 2.6 kg daily according to body weight, untreated or sprayed with 9 litres 30% NaOH per 100 kg straw. Average daily gain with alkali-treated or untreated straw was 763 and 723 g; intake/kg gain was for oat feed units 7 and 7.4 and for digestible crude protein 772 and 812 g. Carcass quality was similar in both groups.
