The system of management planned for each lot of steers follows: Lot 15-Wintored on sorghum silage, 4 pounds of grain, and 1 pound of 41 percent protein concentrate per head daily, free access to mineral (bone meal and salt) and salt; bluestem pasture May 1 to August 1; self-fed grain on bluestem pasture after August 1 to choice grade. Lot 10-Wintered on sorghum silage, 4 pounds of grain, and 1 pound of protein concentrate per head daily, free access to mineral (bone meal and salt) and salt; grazed on bluestem pasture May 1 to August 1; self-fed grain in dry lot after August 1 -to choice:) grade. Lot 9-Wintered on sorghum silage, 4 pounds of grain, and 1 pound of protein concentrate per head daily; free access to mineral (bone meal and salt) and salt; grazed on bluestem pasture, May 1 to August 1; self-fed grain in dry lot from August 1 until they grade choice.
