Use of comparative slaughter to set maintenance energy requirements of beef cattle grazing elephantgrass: description of methodology and results



Use of comparative slaughter to set maintenance energy requirements of beef cattle grazing elephantgrass: description of methodology and results



Revista Brasileira de Zootecnia 34(5): 1721-1729



The maintenance net energy requirement of steers grazing elephant grass (Pennisetum purpureum Napier) was determined. The trial lasted for 175 days. Nine 0.5-ha paddocks implanted in flat-land, in rotational grazing, were used. Thirty-six 3/4 Gir-Holstein steers with an average initial age of 20 months and 332+or-37 kg body weight (BW) were used.
