Protein supplementation of silage-based diets for growing and finishing beef cattle



Protein supplementation of silage-based diets for growing and finishing beef cattle



Fifty eighth annual report, 1984-1985 Agricultural Research Institute of Northern Ireland: 48-58



When well-preserved silages were offered in a series of experiments to finishing beef cattle the inclusion of fish meal in a barley supplement did not affect silage intake, animal performance or carcass composition. The inclusion of soyabean in the supplement did not affect silage intake or carcass composition, but it produced a small increase in animal performance in 2 out of 7 comparisons.
