Abstract

Wet distillers grains plus solubles (WDGS) were fed at 0%, 20% or 40% (DM basis) with varying ratios of distillers grains (WDG) to distillers solubles (DS) to determine effect of inclusion level and amount of solubles on steer performance and carcass characteristics. There was no interaction between WDG inclusion level and WDG:DS ratio. As WDG ± S inclusion increased from 0% to 40% diet DM, final BW and average daily gain (ADG) increased linearly (P = 0.03), while feed-to-gain ratio (F:G) decreased linearly (P < 0.01). However, performance was not affected by the proportion of DS in WDG ± S (P > 0.10).
