Abstract/Summary A major factor determining live weight gain (LWG) in beef cattle consuming tropical pastures in Northern Australia, is the microbial crude protein (MCP) supply and the efficiency of MCP production (eMCP). Native tropical pastures are typically of low nutritive value and the eMCP of cattle grazed on these pastures rarely exceeds 130gMCP/kgDOM, which is marginal for productive growth (NRC 1996). However, Panjaitan (2008) demonstrated that supplementation with spirulina (Spirulina platensis) increased eMCP to 166gMCP/kgDOM.
