Producers very often question the additional length of time they should feed exotic-cross cattle as opposed to the feeding period required for the traditional British breeds of cattle. Also implied in this question in this question is the additional amount of feed needed for the exotic-cross animal to attain an optimum weight and an acceptable grade. This trial was conducted in an attempt to help answer these basic questions.
