Eighty-six pregnant. Hereford x Angus cows were randomly assigned to one of three winter supplement treatments: 1) soybean meal+sorghum grain, 2) alfalfa hay, or 3) dehydrated alfalfa pellets. Cows supplemented with dehydrated alfalfa pellets gained more (P<.05) weight during gestation and lost the least (P<.05) weight at calving. However, no differences (P>.10) were detected in cow body condition change. reproductive efficiency, or calf growth.
