HOW PURINA STEER FATENA WIDENS THE PROFIT GAP
The USDA recently reported that
cattle-feeding efficiency during
the period 1950-54 averaged
9.5 pounds of feed for each
pound of beef produced.
In the four steer-feeding demon
strations described below, Purina
Steer Fatena and grain made a
pound of beef from 7.15 to 8.03
pounds of grain ... an average
of 7.46 pounds in the four tests.

in four public feeding demonstrations . , .
Purina-fed steers return
20.33 more per head
was $20.33 wider per steer in the Steer Fatena
groups (average), than for the cattle fed single
source protein. In addition, the Steer Fatena
cattle put on each pound of gain with an
average of only 7.46 lbs. of feed. This is more
than 2 lbs. less feed than the U. S. average!

Indianapolis, Ind., Norfolk, Nebr., Louisville,
Ky., and Evansville, Ind. In each test, twenty
head of steers were sorted evenly into two lots.

was fed a single-source protein supplement,
while the other lot in the split test received
Purina Steer Fatena with stilbestrol. Length
of feeding varied between 100 and 140 days
