This study was designed to examine the differences between Charolais x Angus versus Angus steers and bulls. Production of choice lean beef was the goal of this project. Dexamethasone injections were given to aid in attempting to achieve this goal. Cattle were self-fed from a feeder at the Adams Street Experiment Farm, University of Nebraska. Charolais x Angus cattle and the Angus bulls received the same ration and were on a finishing ration for approximately 200 days. Angus steers were fed a growing ration and received a finishing ration for approximately 100 days.
