Forage source and quality in finishing cattle programs continue to be a source of concern because of economics and also because of their impact on beef eating qualities. The integration of pasturing systems for cattle finishing programs should allow the producer to produce a leaner and possibly more economical beef supply thus benefiting the consumer and the producer. This experiment was designed to investigate alternative pasture management systems for finishing cattle and to study the impact on meat quality.
