Summary and Implications

Limited research is available concerning the effects of feeding supplemental vitamin C (VC) to feedlot cattle. This study concluded that supplementation of VC to cattle receiving a high S diet improved the marbling scores of these steers, which may be related to the greater plasma VC measured in these cattle.
