AbstractFull Text

The non-carcass components of steers from Brahman, Brangus and Hereford finished in feedlot or pasture with supplementation (mombaça grass) were evaluated. The animals were finished when subcutaneous fat thickness was over 4 mm. The feedlot diets have roughage:concentrate ratio of 60: 40, with 13%...

Abstract

Grazing distribution can be improved by using adapted cattle breeds that travel to distant areas of extensive pastures. A 2-yr study was conducted to evaluate grazing distribution and diet quality of Angus, Brangus, and Brahman cows (seven cows per breed group) in the Chihuahuan Desert during three ...

Abstract

The CP content of winter wheat pasture exceeds the daily CP requirement of beef stocker calves by more than 100%. Excess N is excreted as urinary N and may subsequently be lost through volatilization. The objective of this experiment was to determine stocker calf performance when wheat forage DMI...

Abstract

Leptin is a hormone that affects the regulation of feed intake, energy balance and body composition in mammals. Several polymorphisms in the bovine leptin gene have been associated with phenotypic variance of these traits. We evaluated two known single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the leptin...
