Abstract

Eight grazing experiments were summarized reflecting yearling performance when supplemented with 4.0 or 7.5 lb distillers grains. Daily gains were increased 0.53 and 0.89 lb/day. Subsequent feedlot performance was not influenced by distillers grains supplementation on grass. In a six-trial summary, each 1.0 lb of distillers grains decreased forage intake by 0.5 lb. Economic return for each $1.00 spent on distillers grains yielded returns from $1.41 to $1.94.
