Title: Grass Fed Beef
Author: Landblom, Doug L.; Nelson, James L.
Description: A beef production system utilizing nearly all forage was studied from 1973 to 1976. The system included a wintering phase, a summer grazing phase and a feedlot phase. Straight bred Hereford and Angus.Hereford steers were compared in all phases. Steers finished on chopped hay required 54 more days in drylot when sold at approximately 975 pounds and 46 more days when sold at 1050 pounds than did steers receiving 1% grain. Both grain and the hay finished steers graded V.S.D.A. good and choice, with a higher percentage of Angus X Hereford steers grading choice than did the straight Hereford steers.
