AbstractPregnant range beef cows adjusted to drylotting on all-concentrate grain sorghum rations and then readjusted to native range. Weight changes and reproductive performance on a limited all-concentrate ration compared favorably with commonly used methods of wintering the cow herd. Costs for two drylot methods were higher than for two pasturage methods.
