A trial comparing two levels of protein (160g of crude protein/kg DM or 125g crude protein/kg DM) in maize silage-based finisher rations showed the higher protein diet to be worth £56 a head, with significantly increased carcass values outweighing higher feed costs. Carcass value was £74 higher for the heifers fed 160g crude protein (CP) but the higher feed costs of the extra protein meant overall margin over feed was £56 better off overall.  The clear findings add to a […]
