In Exp. 1, 240 beef steers (initial BW = 332.8 kg) were used to determine the effects of Lactobacillus acidophilus (LA) plus Propionibacterium freudenreichii (PF) on performance, carcass, and intestinal characteristics; serum IgA concentrations; and the prevalence of Escherichia coli O157 (EC). Cattle were fed a steam-flaked corn-based, 92% concentrate(More)
Two experiments were conducted at two locations to determine the effects of dietary CP concentration and source on performance, carcass characteristics, and serum urea nitrogen (SUN) concentrations of finishing beef steers. British x Continental steers were blocked by BW (357 +/- 28 and 305 +/- 25 kg initial BW; n = 360 and 225; four and five pens per(More)
As cattle mature, the dietary protein requirement, as a percentage of the diet, decreases. Thus, decreasing the dietary CP concentration during the latter part of the finishing period might decrease feed costs and N losses to the environment. Three hundred eighteen medium-framed crossbred steers (315 +/- 5 kg) fed 90% (DM basis) concentrate, steam-flaked,(More)
A single experiment with a completely randomized design was conducted to evaluate the effects of long- or short-term exposure to a calf identified as persistently infected with bovine viral diarrhea virus (PI-BVD) on feedlot performance and carcass characteristics of freshly weaned, transport-stressed beef heifers. Two hundred eighty-eight heifers that had(More)
The NRC (1996) changed from the factorial protein system to a metabolizable protein (MP) system for beef cattle. In the MP system, dietary crude protein (CP) is subdivided into degraded intake protein (DIP) and undegraded intake protein (UIP). The quantity of microbial protein produced in the rumen dictates DIP requirements. Steam-flaked corn is the(More)
A total of 2,948 steers (mean initial BW = 568.9 ± 49.4 kg) were used to evaluate the effect of the LEP R25C SNP genotype on feed intake, growth performance, and carcass characteristics over time. Steers were grouped into 5 blocks, each consisting of 10 pens initially, and then at approximately 24 d prior to the assigned slaughter date, cattle in each pen(More)
Eight primiparous and nine multiparous Holstein cows were used in a randomized block design to determine the effect of wet corn gluten feed in the diet during the last 21 days of gestation on dry matter intake and early postpartum performance. Multilactation cows fed wet corn gluten feed maintained a higher dry matter intake and intake as a percentage of(More)
