Low to moderate stocking rates allow for average daily gains of nearly 3 lbs per day. Stocking rates and stocking strategies can produce gains of 650 to 900 lbs per acre. Pasture with or without supplementation can result in body weights of more than 1000 lbs with reduced feedlot residence. Direct harvest of cattle off pasture has potential to produce acceptable beef for niche markets.
