Interactive effects of forage and breed on steer performance involving endophyte-infected tall fescue and Senepol cattle

, : Interactive effects of forage and breed on steer performance involving endophyte-infected tall fescue and Senepol cattle. Proceedings of the 7th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production, Montpellier, France, August, 2002 Session 25: 1-3

Heat-sensitive Hereford and heat tolerant Senepol steers (Bos taurus) were fed tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea) or orchardgrass (Dactylis glomerata) over 2 summers to assess breed differences in sensitivity to Neotyphodium coenophialum, a fungal endophyte that infects tall fescue and causes hyperthermia and poor growth in cattle. In Year 1, tall fescue increased (P<0.01) respiration rates and daytime shade use compared to orchardgrass-fed contemporaries.
