Abstract

Liveweight changes were measured using 105 yearling Brahman crossbred steers (mean liveweight 336 kg)
which were held in yards and fasted (no feed or water) for 6, 12 or 18 hours (6F, 12F, 18F, respectively).
Each fasting period was followed by a 24 hour recovery period on water and then the steers were returned to pasture for 14 days.
