Feeding Sugar Beet Byproducts to Cattle - AS1365
The sugar beet industry produces a wide variety of useful byproducts for livestock feeders. The decision to incorporate sugar beet byproducts into diets should be based on economics, local availability, and feasibility of storage, handling and feeding. For the wet byproducts, careful attention should be given to transportation costs and storage. In addition, rations containing sugar beet byproducts should be balanced properly to achieve targeted livestock performance.

Systems for Backgrounding Beef Cattle - AS1151
Many different methods or systems of backgrounding, or growing beef cattle, are available. Each system has advantages and disadvantages that producers must weigh before deciding which is right for them. Producers should recognize the need for many different types of systems because of the many different types of cattle. Not all backgrounding systems work with each type of cattle. Some cattle are best suited to being finished directly after weaning, while other cattle are best finished following an extensive growing program. This publication will outline the different types of backgrounding systems that are available for producers to use and describe the kind and type of cattle that best fit each system.

Improving Profitability Through Feed Efficiency by Reducing Feed Bunk Losses - AS1641
Feeding behavior of group-housed dairy cows is influenced by management practices at the feed bunk and factors associated with the physical and social environment. The feeding pattern of group-housed dairy cows is largely influenced by the timing of fresh feed delivery, and the delivery of fresh feed has a greater impact on stimulating cows to eat than does the return from milking. Delivering fresh feed more frequently improves access to fresh feed for all cows and reduces sorting of the TMR. This potentially will reduce variation in diet quality consumed by cows, with benefits for milk production.
