dc.description.abstract Forty choice Hereford steer calves, purchased from the Lonker Ranch in Barber county, Kansas, were used in this experiment. The steers of Lot 1 were wintered in a dry lot at the experimental barn, while those of the other lots were wintered on dry bluestem pasture at the experimental range unit. The pastures had been stocked at a normal rate the previous summer; adequate grass remained for winter pasture. The calves of Lots 2, 3, and 4 were moved from pasture to pasture monthly to minimize any differences due to pasture. en_US
