The effect of mid-summer protein supplementation of steers or heifers grazing endophyte-infected fescue pastures



The effect of mid-summer protein supplementation of steers or heifers grazing endophyte-infected fescue pastures



Animal Science Research Report, Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station1989; ( 8): 112-115



Steers or heifers located on 3 cooperating farms were each given daily 0.45 kg of a cubed feed product that contained 40% crude protein from natural sources and lasalocid 200 mg. The supplement was given daily for about 60 days in mid-summer. Control cattle had access to a loose-free-choice mineral mixture containing lasalocid. When combined across farms and sexes, the 40% supplement significantly increased average daily gain by 0.09 kg.
