Question outdoor exposed end grain?

outdoor project with pressure treated pine.

end grain exposed on each end of a beam.

would it be best to place a "cap" over this using a sacrafice board?
OR
Should something be applied to the end grain to be sure its life isnt cut short due to the elements. *if so, what should be used?*

The same thing you use to preserve the rest of the treated lumber

The sun is tough on any lumber, so it will need protection

The end grain doesn't matter. The preserative they put on the wood goes all the way through the wood. Just coat the ends of the wood with the same thing you put on the rest of it.
