Departmental Pamphlet Number 2
Numerous experiments on the response of growing and fattening cattle to stilbestrol have been reported in recent years. There has been a response to stilbestrol in most of these experiments, though to varying degrees. Many of the reports have been of a preliminary nature and in several instances have covered only one trial. A review of such experiments individually does not present a clear and concise picture of the effects of stilbestrol treatment. Therefore, results of most of the reported experiments have been reviewed and are summarized in the tables in this pamphlet. Four rather distinct phases of cattle feeding have been investigated. These are wintering without much fattening, pasturing alone, pasturing with additional feeding, and dry-lot fattening. These feeding phases are summarized separately.
