A.S. Series 71-16
In a previous experiment (A.S. Series 70-20 ) , steers were fed dry or reconstituted high-moisture corn grain , whole or rolled , at 1 lb . per 100 lb . of body weight with alfalfa-brome hay or reconstituted haylage to appetite from weights of about 500 to 825 lb . Higher rates of gain with lower feed requirements were obtained with high-moisture corn and haylage than from dry corn and hay. The greatest benefits from the moist feeds resulted when high-moisture corn and haylage were fed together. There appeared to be a slight advantage for rolling the corn under these conditions of limited grain and full-fed roughage.
The cattle were also used in a finishing experiment where diet treatments were the same as during the growing experiment, except the roughage portion of the diet was limited to low levels with corn grain full-fed. This finishing experiment is reported herein.
