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

, : Effect of nutrition, age and size on compensatory growth in two breeds of steers. Journal of Animal Science 63(6): 1968-1982

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).

Four experiments were carried out in which growing bullocks were fed to appetite or were given 80, 60 or 40% of their nutrient requirements for 90 or 150 days. Periods of deprivation were started at 61, 91, 121 or 211 days of age. All underfed ani...
