dc.description.abstract Good to choice quality Hereford steers were used in this test. They were purchased in the fall of 1951 and used in winter feeding tests. For the test reported here, they were lotted as equally as possible in regard to previous treatment. All lots were treated the same in this test except for the method of grain preparation. The grain was self-fed. The cottonseed oilmeal was fed in a separate bunk. Prairie hay was fed in quantities that would be readily cleaned up by each lot. The rolled milo was dry rolled and appeared satisfactory upon emergence from the roller; however, after sacking and when it was finally fed to the cattle, it was broken into small particles and somewhat powdered. The coarsely ground or cracked milo was the product of a burr mill. A hammer mill was used to prepare the finely ground milo, which was ground to a coarse, mealy mixture. en_US
