Six ruminally cannulated steers and six intact steers were used in a 6x6 Latin square design to determine the effect of corn bran and/or corn steep liquor/distillers solubles on ruminal metabolism and digestibility. Steers fed corn steep liquor/distiller’s solubles had lower average daily pH. Corn bran helped maintain a higher average pH. Corn steep liquor/distillers solubles fed alone altered the fermentation pattern of steers. There was a tendency for corn bran to reduce digestibility and for corn steep liquor/distillers solubles to improve digestibility.
