finishing rations for beef cattle. In , the United States produced million Mg ( billion bushels) of corn (USDA, ). Corn can serve as the only grain source in back-grounding and finishing diets for beef, and is one of the most affordable, abundant, and sustainable grains grown in the United States. Bluegrass straw supported small weight gains and normal production in gestating beef cows (Early and Anderson, ), but considerable amounts of supplemented grain were needed to produce kg/day gain in calves (Durham and Hinman, ~. Rice and grass seed straws must often be removed from the field for agronomic reasons. Simple rations based on barley, oats, and soybean oilmeal plus needed minerals and vitamins form an economical basis for production of hogs in North Dakota. Several rations are listed below as samples of rations useful for pigs of different ages. These rations may be modified to use economical feeds available on the farm or in the locality. The sugar beet industry produces a wide variety of useful byproducts for livestock feeders. The decision to incorporate sugar beet byproducts into diets should be based on economics, local availability, and feasibility of storage, handling and feeding. For the wet byproducts, careful attention should be given to transportation costs and storage.

The steer is 28 months old, the heifer is 26 month of age. Both of these will easily grade USDA Choice, possibly Prime and will each weigh in excess of lbs. So if anyone should question whether truly finishing beef on pasture is possible; our answer is an emphatic YES!! Potato slices may replace barley and corn in growing-finishing diets. Use up to 20% cooked-dried potato slices in the grower-diet and 40% in the finisher diet. Potato pulp is a by-product of the starch industry and is the residue obtained after starch is extracted. Since potato pulp is uncooked, its palatability and digestibility are poor. However, the rate of N degradation was significantly more rapid (PSTEER RATIONS TABLE 3 Blood composition (mg ml-~) of beef steers fed lupin or grass silage supplemented with barley or potato Grass Lupin SEM Barley Potato Barley Potato Ureat Mbumin Total protein I I. 1 Cited by: 6.

Wheat straw may also be used as a partial roughage source in growing and finishing diets. Straw needs to be chopped prior to inclusion in mixed rations, with an average particle length of not more than 1 inch. Optimum utilization of wheat straw results when used in combina-tion with high-quality forage such as alfalfa hay. Substitution of straw for. Feeding pressed beet pulp in place of corn silage in a finishing diet resulted in equal feed efficien-cies though dry matter intake was slightly affected. Summary Two trials were conducted to evalu-ate feeding pressed beet pulp as the roughage source in finishing diets. British crossbred steers were fed % corn silage, % beet pulp, or %.
