Stocker cattle, limit-feeding


Objective: Analyze the effects on performance when feeding a high-energy by-product-based diet to newly received growing cattle.

Description: A total of 400 Angus × Hereford heifers originating from Montana were used to determine the effects on performance when intake of a high-energy corn by-product-based diet is increased to near ad libitum intake.

The Bottom Line: One high-energy diet based on wet corn gluten feed can be offered to achieve a variety of gains efficiently by only altering the amount of feed offered.
