This is an 80 percent forage diet used in the same experiment that CD2 was used in. As expected, rate of live weight gain was lower for CD3 than for CD2. The diet was offered free-choice. Trace mineral and vitamin premixes are those used in CD2. The calculated composition of the diet on a dry matter basis is:
|CP - 13.5%|
|TDN - 59.4%|
|Ca - 0.67%|
|P - 0.34%|
|Ingredient||% (air dry basis)|
|Trace mineralized salt||0.455|
