The poor animal performance obtain with rations containing a high amount of oats indicated a need to more accurately describe the place of oats in growing and finishing rations for cattle. Therefore, this experiment was conducted to study whole, rolled or ground and pelleted oats as the only grain for feedlot steers. Feedlot performance and digestibility were determined and compared for each form of oats.
