Abstract

An updated meta-analysis of UNL feedlot trials replacing dry rolled (DRC) or high moisture (HMC) corn with wet distillers grains plus solubles (WDGS) indicated feeding performance similar to previous estimates. The feeding value of WDGS was similar for winter-fed calves, summer-fed yearlings, and fall-fed yearlings. The improvement in F:G from both WDGS and HMC was synergistic compared to DRC with or without WDGS. Feeding WDGS at increased levels in HMC-based diets provided performance superior to DRC with or without WDGS.
