Roughage levels and roughage substitutes in high concentrate diets for finishing beef cattle and lambs



Roughage levels and roughage substitutes in high concentrate diets for finishing beef cattle and lambs



Dissertation Absts. Internat. (B). 30: 3932B-3933B



Yearling beef bullocks given rolled maize supplemented with protein, minerals and vitamins gained 1.30 kg daily and required 6.79 kg feed per kg gained. Oyster shell, 3% of the diet, had little effect on growth, carcass or rumen fermentation, but slightly increased digestibility and reduced concentrate needs. When the diet had 3, 10 or 20% lucerne hay, growth was 15.4% more with any amount than with no hay.
