Abstract
In the previous paper it was emphasized that live weight gains of cattle on a wholly pasture diet are erratic and that from,the viewpoint of beef production three courses are open- (i) to accept the erratic nature of live weight gains of cattle on a wholly pasture diet and be prepared also to accept the time involved for these animals to reach the "finishing", slaughter stage from weaning; (ii) to recognize the erratic nature of live weight gains of cattle on a wholly pasture diet and, by carefully calculated supplementation, to aim for rapid growth with fattening after weaning; and (iii) to aim for rapid growth with fattening indoors. In this paper, only the first two courses will be discussed.
