Nutrient status in gestating beef cows has been shown to impact performance of the dam and offspring; however, most research has focused on energy or a total diet restriction and a single period of gestation. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of maternal metabolizable protein (MP) restriction in primiparous heifers during mid- and/or late gestation on dam and suckling calf performance through weaning.
