dc.description.abstract Four lots of 10 Hereford steer calves per lot are being used in this study. They were part of 220 calves purchased from the Brite Ranch at Marfa, Texas. The cost was 29 cents per pound delivered to Manhattan, Kansas, on November 3, 1952. From the date received until they were placed on test December 18, 1952, they were fed prairie hay and 1 pound of soybean pellets per head daily. All lots were wintered on dry bluestem pasture except lot 13 wintered in a drylot. The calves on pasture were rotated on pasture every 15 days to equalize any differences due to pasture. The pastures in which the steers grazed were stocked at a normal rate during the 1952 summer season; sufficient grass remained for winter grazing. The winter stocking rate ranged from 4 to 13 acres per steer, varying with the different sizes of pasture available for use. en_US
