Urea is a common ingredient in cattle diets. While this nonprotein nitrogren compound is a satisfactory source of supplemental protein in many cattle diets, there are limitations as to levels in the diet and conditions of use. The primary basis for the use of urea as a substitute for conventional high-protein ingredients is the lower cost for protein supplementation.
