Abstract
  • In this day of high investment, high cost, and narrow economic margins in livestock operations it is not enough to increase-the forage quantity and quality. The livestock rancher must increase the efficiency of his livestock in the job of converting forage to pounds of saleable product. This increased efficiency may be attained by: (1) Scientific breeding and selection, (2) a higher standard of health and sanitation, (3) improving management, and (4) improving the nutritional status of the animals. Greater efficiency in livestock production must come from simultaneous improvement in all four areas. One neglected area can prevent the others from being beneficial. For example, there would be little benefit from breeding to efficiency tested high quality bulls and then wintering the breeding cows and fattening the calves on wheat straw. Improved nutrition and health through the use of feed additives and better feed quality is an important link in the chain of increased production efficiency. The progress reports in this publication present a part of the program of nutrition research carried at the Squaw Butte Experiment Station. This information will help to strengthen the chain leading to greater economic return from beef cattle. Papers and bulletins reporting completed work may be obtained by writing to the Station. Watch for new publications on work presently in progress.
