A meta-analysis of UNL feedlot trials was conducted to evaluate the effect of replacing dry-rolled or high-moisture corn with wet corn gluten feed (WCGF) on feedlot cattle performance and carcass characteristics. The feeding value of WCGF was dependent on ratio of steep to corn bran of the WCGF. The performance of cattle fed WCGF composed of wet bran and steep was similar to corn fed cattle. Feeding and carcass performance of cattle fed WCGF composed of dry bran, steep, and germ improved linearly as dietary inclusion increased.
