Performance and mineral status of steers grazing reclaimed mine land amended with fluidized bed combustion residue



Performance and mineral status of steers grazing reclaimed mine land amended with fluidized bed combustion residue



Animal Science Research Report, Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station1985; (4): 38-40



Fluidized bed combustion residue (FBCR) is a waste product resulting from the addition of limestone to coal prior to combustion. Eighteen yearling steers grazed one of 3 treatments: limestone (3 tons/a), FBCR (6 tons/a), and control (no amendment). Soil pH was similarly elevated (P < 0.05) in the limestone and FBCR pastures, compared to control pastures. Cattle gains and forage yields were not significantly affected by treatment.
