Dietary electrolyte balance effects on performance and metabolic characteristics in finishing steers.


One hundred twenty Angus and Angus-hereford crossbred steers (337 +/- 3 kg) were used in a randomized complete block design to evaluate the effects of dietary electrolyte balance (DEB; Na + K - Cl) on performance, acid-base status, and plasma mineral concentrations in cattle consuming a high-concentrate, low-fiber (5% cottonseed hull) diet.
