dc.description.abstract The National Research Council (publication 1137) recommends 10% protein (90% dry matter) to finish yearling steers. Sorghum grain in Kansas usually contains about 9 to 11 percent protein, although it may vary considerably depending on the variety, soil, weather and other variables (samples have ranged from 6 to 17%). Research has shown that under certain conditions, all-concentrate rations may be practical. Since low protein roughage is not used, a 10 percent protein ration can, in many cases, be formulations from sorghum grain alone. en_US
