Forty-eight individually fed crossbred steers (British and British x Continental; BW=296+/-16.7 kg) were used to evaluate effects of different growing diets on changes in accretion of intramuscular (IMF) and subcutaneous (SCF) adipose tissues, insulin sensitivity, and carcass traits. Dietary treatments were AL-LC (a low-corn diet fed to allow cattle ad libitum access to feed), AL-HC (a high-corn diet fed to allow cattle ad libitum access to feed), LF-HC (a limit fed high-corn diet with the… CONTINUE READING
