Nutritional recommendations of feedlot consulting nutritionists: The 2015 New Mexico State and Texas Tech University survey.
Data from this survey provide insight into current nutritional and management practices of consulting nutritionists and should be useful for informing national committees that make nutritional recommendations for cattle, as well as nutrition and management strategies employed within university research settings.

Influence of fasting and transit on ruminal and blood metabolites in beef steers.
The data suggest that the physiological response of fasting alone differs considerably from that of fasting and transit stress, because transit appears to impose influences on rumen fermentation and blood chemistry beyond those imposed by fasting. Expand
Feeding and watering behavior of healthy and morbid steers in a commercial feedlot.
The pattern of time spent at the feed bunk throughout the 32-d feeding period was similar for healthy and subsequently morbid steers, but healthy steers had more feeding bouts per day. Expand
Application of feeding behaviour to predict morbidity of newly received calves in a commercial feedlot
The objective of this study was to use feeding behavior of newly received steers (average initial weight 191 kg) to detect morbidity in animals in a commercial feedlot. Two separate 32 d feedingExpand
Effect of rotating monensin plus tylosin and lasalocid on performance, ruminal fermentation, and site and extent of digestion in feedlot cattle.
Although daily rotation of L and MT improved performance of growing-finishing feedlot steers, this improvement was not attributable to alterations in ruminal fermentation, or in site or extent of nutrient digestion. Expand
Effects of Metaphylactic Antibiotics on Behavior of Feedlot Calves
Metaphylactic injectable antibiotics administered upon calves’ arrival at the feedlot did not reduce the total time newly received feedlot calves spent feeding, decreased the incidence of morbidity by 43%, and improved growth performance during the 21-d receiving period. Expand
Radio frequency technology to measure feeding behavior and health of feedlot steers
Radio frequency technology was used to collect information on the feeding patterns of 108 steers for 32 days after entering the feedlot and has the potential to identify sick animals and improve feedlot health management practices. Expand
Horses and cattle grazing in the Wyoming Red Desert. I. Food habits and dietary overlap.
The sagebrush-grass rrnge in southcentral Wyoming supports large numbers of feral homes and domestic livestock and dietary overlap between feral horses and cattle during summer and winter grazing seasons is addressed. Expand
Control of liver abscesses in feedlot cattle: A review11Contribution no. 10-205-J from the Kansas Agric. Exp. Stn., Manhattan 66506
Providing a source of true scratch-factor to the rumen, either by increasing the percentage of coarse roughage included in the TMR or by periodically providing coarse hay apart from the T MR, appears to be the most effective method of reducing LA. Expand
Energy Requirements of Adult Moose for Winter Maintenance
Nine adult moose (Alces alces) were randomly assigned to 1 of 3 diets in 2 separate feeding trials. Our objectives were to determine how moose respond in winter to varying amounts of the same qualityExpand
