Effect of muddy feedlot pens on cattle
Wet and muddy pen conditions add to the negative perception of feedlots, and there is a lack of scientifically defensible evidence to either support or counter such claims.
What are we doing?
This project will provide objective, science-based information on whether ‘cattle preference for the feedlot declines as muddy conditions increase’. This research will provide industry with a valuable assessment of what cattle perceive as ‘acceptable’ pen conditions.
