This work was commenced as part of the co-ordinated plan of investigations into beef growth rates in the southern regions of Australia, and was referred to in the introductory note "Beef Growth Rate Studies" published in this Journal (Vol. 5, No. 4, July-August, 1956). For the period 1950 to 1953 inclusive, an endeavour was made to procure evidence showing the trend in weight gain according to the seasons of the year. In the 1953-54 season and since, the work has been varied to measure the growth rate of steers which were grazed on irrigated pasture during the summer months, in comparison with others grazed on dry pasture at that time.
