Abstract

Low phosphorus and energy intake by cows fed barley straw caused calving difficulties; but cows fed rice-straw rations had no difficulty and produced calves within the normal weight range.Rice straw is palatable and a satisfactory feed for pregnant beef cows, provided protein, mineral, and vitamin requirements are met; however, barley straw, when fed at high levels, is unpalatable even when supplemented.
