dc.description.abstract Previous work has shown that rate of gain and carcass quality are essentially the same with milo grain and corn when self-fed in a beef-fattening ration (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Circulars 308, 320, and 335). However, the animals eat more milo grain than corn per pound of gain. Because of its relatively small size, the milo grain is more difficult to prepare than the larger grain of corn, This is a progress report of a preliminary test to evaluate grinding milo grain to a meal and then making it into a pellet. Source and level of hormones and synthetic hormonelike substances used as implants are also being studied. The reader should keep in mind that this test is still in progress and results given here are incomplete. en_US
