Experiment was carried out on a total of 30 young Simmental bulls divided by analogue method into 2 groups of 15 each. Both groups received dry complete mixtures of identical composition, the only difference being that control received it friable and the experimental group in the form of pelleted feed. Based on the results obtained it was found that the complete pelleted mixtures had a more beneficial effect on the fattening of bulls than diets given in the friable form. As a result lesser feed consumption per kg weight gain was obtained, and in general higher daily weight gains - in control 1063 g and in experimental group 1188 g. To sum up it can be ascertained that a system of fattening young cattle with dry complete rations, both friable and pelleted, can be widely used in the final phase of fattening (for 45-60 days), which allows us to obtain high-class slaughter animals.
