Cattlemen's Day, 1984; Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station contribution; no. 84-300-S; Report of progress (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service); 448; Beef; Sodium bicarbonate; Sorghum silage; Rate of gain; Performance
High-moisture forage sorghum silage was fed to 108 steer calves to measure the effect of sodium bicarbonate and feed flavor (Omniflavor®) on calf performance. Overall performance was similar for all three rations by the end of the 94-day trial, but at days 29 to 56, when weather conditions were extremely cold, bicarbonate and Omniflavor each gave improved rate and efficiency of gains.
