Studies were conducted to investigate the effect of feces recycling in beef cattle diets (rations) on the digestibility of various dietary nutrients and on the accumulation of indigestible residues. Feces were refed in three successive phases based primarily upon the quantity of feces produced in the previous phase. Several different roughage levels in high concentrate rations were considered. An attempt was made to investigate the digestibility of various nutrient parameters in feces when refed and the roughage value of feces. Mineral retention data and the accumulation of various minerals in the fecal and urinary residues were studied. Varying levels of feces in growing/maintenance rations were investigated along with the efficiency of urinary nitrogen (N) as a supplemental N source.
