Abstract

Bedded hoop barns have become popular for feeding beef cattle. The cattle are kept in the hoop barn, which is bedded to form a manure pack. ISU work has shown that the cattle perform well. However, producers question how to manage the pack and when to clean out.

The objective of this study was to compare three clean-out strategies (none, once, and twice) for beef cattle fed in hoop barns.
