Abstract

Satisfactory winter gains were obtained with beef cattle in either concrete or dirt corrals when allowed 312 to 355 sq ft of space per animal, according to these tests. Animals given shelters and slatted floors gained as well in only 58 sq ft of space per animal, as did unsheltered animals in a dirt corral with 355 sq ft per animal. Stalls were of no benefit to beef cattle, as used in these tests, and in some cases actually reduced animal weight gains.
