ALICE SPRINGS RURAL REVIEW, Page 8 of 20 The Results At the time of writing this article the samples collected were in the process of being analysed and as such those results can not be presented, but keep an eye out in coming Alice Springs Rural Review issues! The results presented here relate to the liveweight performance of the cattle, their feed intake and digestibility of the mulga. Figure 1: Shows the live-weight performance of the two groups of cattle, those supplemented with PEG (PEG) and those that were not (Control). The graph shows that there is no significant difference between the groups of cattle. Weeks 1 6 was the period of low supplementation (14g 105g/head/day) with PEG and weeks 7 8 was the period of high supplementation (200g/head/day). Figure 2: Shows the feed intake (mulga and hay) results from the final two weeks, again demonstrating no significant difference between the two groups of cattle.
