Two trials were conducted to study the protein requirements of growing cattle grazing cornstalks. Diet composition and forage intake were determined at different periods during the grazing season. Residue intake and dietary CP content decreased (P less than .05) .079 kg and .044 percentage units per day of grazing, respectively. In vitro DM disappearance of the roughage fraction of the diet remained high early in the grazing period when husk availability was high, then declined in a curvilinear… CONTINUE READING
