Abstract

The investigations reported in the following pages are a continuation of the cooperative work started in 1904 between the Bureau of Animal Industry and the Alabama Experiment Station. ... Of the various problems which arise concerning the care of cattle on the farm, one of the most frequent deals with the method of carrying the stock cattle through the winter. ... [These experiments were conducted] to determine the most profitable methods of wintering mature steers in the South ... and to study the effects of the various methods of wintering on the rapidity of the gains made by the steers during the subsequent summer fattening.
