For 126 days in the autumn-winter season of 1994, 28 penned Hereford steers of 9-10 months of age and 208 kg liveweight were utilized in order to compare L. albus (white lupin) and L. angustifolius (Australian lupin) grain as a finishing supplementary feed. Treatments studied were: T1, ground white lupin; T2, whole white lupin; T3, ground Australian lupin; and T4, whole Australian lupin. Both types of grain had alkaloid concentrations lower than 0.05%.
