dc.description In 1972, North Dakota ranked third in the U.A. in the production of oats, growing about 13 per cent of the nation's total. Oats (avena sativa) are and have been a popular grain in rations for breeding herds, for growing calves and as part of finishing rations or for starting steers on feed. Experiments have shown that except for calves up to about a year of age, it pays to grind oats for beef cattle. At the North Dakota Experiment Station, rolled oats used as the only grain with limited roughage were worth about 88 per cent as much as barley for cattle. Preliminary observations suggested a breed or type of cattle difference in response to the physical form in which oats are fed, so two types of steers were used to obtain information on this point. This article presents an experiment using two breeds of cattle to test the differences in their weight gains. The two types of steers performed somewhat differently on the whole oats treatment.
