Abstract

A summer feedlot trial indicates that protein can be removed from finishing rations in proportion to magnitude of heat stress without causing a decline in average daily lain. Cattle consumed .13 kg/hd/day (.30 lb) less supplemental protein soybean oil meal) during the 82-day period with no decline in average daily gain when compared to controls.
