Effect of nutrition, age and size on compensatory growth in two breeds of steers

Journal of Animal Science 63(6): 1968-1982
Effect of nutrition, age and size on compensatory growth in two breeds of steers
A factorial experiment was conducted incorporating 2 growing diet regimes (control vs. restricted), 2 ages (spring-born vs. autumn-born) and 2 breeds (Aberdeen-Angus vs. Charolais).
