dc.description.abstract Cattle fed grass silage diets have been reported to have high carcass fat:protein ratios. The effect of grass silage and dried grass diets, fed at different levels of intake to ensure a range of equivalent metabolisable energy intakes (MEI) from 1·1×metabolisable energy requirement for maintenance to ad libitum, on fat and protein metabolism in twenty-four Hereford×Friesian steers was investigated. After about 84d of dietary treatment rates of whole-body fat and protein metabolism were measured, as were rates of lipogenesis in omental, perirenal and subcutaneous adipose tissue. Carcass composition was determined. Animals fed silage had greater (P en
