This investigation was undertaken in order that something might be learned concerning: (a) the cost of maintenance of live weight in ungrown cattle; (b) the effect of a maintenance ration upon the condition of ungrown cattle; (c) the effect of widely different nutritive planes upon the economy of gain; (d) the relation between the total feed and grain eaten and the total productive feed and grain eaten; (e) the energy value of normal growth; (f) the relation between the condition of fatness and the calorific cost of gain (g) the effect of the previous plane of nutrition upon the subsequent maintenance cost; (h) the relative rate of growth in young cattle as influenced by the amount of feed eaten; (i) the effect of the quantity of the feed eaten upon the relative growth of different parts of the young animal.
