Grass height for finishing cattle

, : Grass height for finishing cattle. Occasional Symposium, British Grassland Society (22): 232-234

170 cattle were grazed on a Lolium perenne/Trifolium repens sward in 1985 at an initial stocking rate of 2300 or 3100 kg liveweight/ha to give mean sward surface heights of 10 or 7 cm and in 1986 at 1600 or 2000 kg liveweight/ha to give similar sward surface heights.

A total of 122 finishing cattle, bucket fed and single suckled, Charolais- and Hereford-cross steers and heifers, were set stocked on perennial ryegrass-domninant swards in balanced groups to achieve target sward surface heights (SSH) of 7 or 10 c...

In trials with weanling and yearling bullocks annual ryegrass straw up to 30 to 35% of the feed gave satisfactory gain, and in a finishing feed 12 to 15% was as good as more typical feeds with less roughage. Treatment of the straw with 4% NaOH inc...
