Patterns of feeding behavior of beef cattle

Proceedings of the 1984 Maryland Nutrition Conference for Feed Manufacturers: 95-100
Patterns of feeding behavior of beef cattle
Activity patterns of grazing cattle and feedlot cattle, and feeding patterns when feeding space is limited are discussed. It is concluded that the pattern of feeding behaviour and intake is highly repeatable. The diurnal pattern has 2 major peaks each day and a minor peak at night. The 2 day peaks are affected by time of sunrise and sunset with the time of sunset having the greater effect. The amount of night eating is greater in winter when the daylength is less.
