Yearling Indian Zebu, Jamaica Red and Jamaica Black bulls got for 140 days a diet in which sugar cane with rind removed provided 80% and a supplement of protein, minerals and vitamins 20% of DM. Urea was 40% of the crude protein. For the other 3 o...

Feedlot performance, carcass quality, and production costs. Forty Angus-cross steers were used to evaluate 5 beef cattle management regimens for their effect on growth performance, carcass characteristics, and cost of production. A 98-d growing phase was incorporated using grass silage with or without grow...
