To improve bovine meat production with dairy breed steers a research program on grassland-based steer production was set up. Over 10 years, many production systems were studied for growth performance carcass and a few meat traits. The objectives were to use only pasture and grass silage and hay, and to produce animals weighing 700 kg live weight, with a minimal conformation O (from EUROP scale).
