The objective of this research was to study methods of increasing the efficiency of utilization of urea in supplements fed with prairie hay to wintering beef calves. Four wintering experiments were conducted in which weight gains, feed consumption and feed efficiency were used as measures of performance. In addition, a series of in, vitro trials was conducted with ammonia (NH3) and total volatile fatty acid (VFA) production being measured.
