Extract

The current upward trend in cereal prices will have a negative impact on the economics of intensive beef finishing systems. Patterson et al (1994) concluded that continental bulls could perform at a high level on diets which were relatively low in concentrates and predominantly based on grass silage. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the effect of forage:concentrate ratio and weight at slaughter on the meat quality of ¾ or more continental bulls.
