Abstract

Iowa’s beef cattle industry is comprehensively evaluating the environmental management of feedlots. As the Iowa cattle feeding industry focuses on environmental management, there has been increasing interest in systems where runoff is minimized, such as a bedded hoop barn. A three-year study evaluating the performance of yearling steers in a bedded hoop barn was conducted.
