Current Project

Effects of RFI classification and strategic supplementation of low quality diets to optimize beef cow performance

Executive Summary

The goal of this trial is to investigate specific nutritional management programs and how specific genetics perform when nutrients are limiting. This will include assessing growth performance, body condition, reproductive performance, and calf production. This project will demonstrate how specific genetics perform across diverse nutritional regimens, and how strategic supplementation of low quality diets can be used to lower costs of production for Ontario cow-calf producers.

Expected Completion: 2017
