Cattlemen's Day, 1989; Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station contribution; no. 89-567-S; Report of progress (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service); 567; Beef; Grain supplementation; Stocker steers; Performance


Two levels of sorghum grain supplementation (2 or 4 lb/day) for"¢steers in an intensive-early stocking program tended to increase average daily gain in direct proportion to increasing supplement level (2.7 and 2.9 lb/day. respectively, compared to 2.5 lb with no supplement). Similarly, grass remaining in the pastures after the cattle were removed on July 15, and at the end of the growing season on October 1, was greater when cattle were supplemented.
