Annual acre beef gain is related to annual acre forage production. The relationship is quadratic and may be used for estimating differences in annual beef gain per acre among treatments evaluated as to forage production under grazing conditions in the same experiments. The difference-estimating equation is: D = 0.071,18 (X1 − X2) − 0.000,001,732 (X12 − X22), where X1 and X2 are the average annual acre yields in pounds of oven dry forage for the two treatments.
