Efficient feed utilisation BOWDEN Animal Nutritionist Feed represents about 60 per cent of the total cost to produce weaned beef Factors that influence feeding costs include the price paid for the reproductive rate and efficiency with which the cow uses her feed to produce the foetus and and also the size and growth rate of the The amount of feed used by each cow is influenced by her body size and her ability to di gest and use the nutrients from the A study to define more ac curately the factors influencing the ability of the beef cow to use feed is being started at the Lethbridge Research
