Organic modifiers effect on beef heifers development during winter.

João Restle, Luiz Danilo Muehlmann, Nilo Luz Ourique

Abstract


The experiment evaluated the use of injectable additives known as "organic modifiers", containing minerals, vitamins and amino acids on the weight gain of yearling beef heifers when kept on adequate or limited nutritional conditions. The results showed that the injection of additives did not affect the daily weight gain of beef heifers when kept on limited (native pasture) or on adequate (cultivated pasture) nutritional conditions.
