Synopsis

Synopsis

Pelleted Coastal bermudagrass produced rapid steer gains of more than two pounds per day. A concentrate ration produced a similar rate of gain and carcasses with higher finish and dressing percent, and required about the same amount of feed per pound of gain. A third treatment consisting of 1/2 Coastal pellets and 1/2 concentrates produced the fastest gains and a dressing percent comparable to a higher concentrate ration. This treatment required less feed per pound of gain than either of the other two.
