Forage Utilization and Beef Cow Nutrition
Pregnant mature beef cows were fed one of five rations: tub ground hay, low corn supplementation plus hay, high corn plus hay, low corn gluten feed (CGF) pellets plus hay, and high CGF plus hay. All treatments resulted in weight gains and limited body condition score changes. The hay and high CGF pellet diet resulted in statistically different weight gains compared with the other supplementation programs.
