Alfalfa pellets hand-fed to weaner beef heifers at the rate of 1.5 pounds or more per head per day were as effective in promoting weight gains as were cottonseed meal pellets fed at the same rate. However, when the daily feeding rate was only 1.0 pound per head per day, the heifers gained more on cottonseed meal pellets than on alfalfa pellets.
