report description
The experiment reported here was conducted to determine the need for supplemental protein in all-concentrate diets composed largely of corn grain and in diets with low levels of roughage (4 lb. of alfalfa haylage). Cattle fed supplements with soybean meal or urea were compared to those fed similar diets without supplemental protein to the corn or corn and alfalfa haylage.
