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.

However, no differences (P>.10) were detected in cow body condition change. reproductive efficiency, or calf growth.
