Western Research and Demonstration Farm
In areas consisting of highly productive land interdispersed with highly erodable land, the latter would best fit the concept of sustainable agriculture by being placed into permanent pasture. The objective of this study was to graze steer calves for varying lengths of time on such permanent pasture and then to finish then in drylot and determine the subsequent impact on feedlot performance, carcass composition, and economic return.
