Abstract

Crossbred steers (n = 483) were fed dry-rolled corn based finishing dietscontaining 0 or 30% wet distillers grains with the synthetic antioxidants, ethoxyquin and tertiary butyl hydroquinone (AGRADO®PLUS). Synthetic antioxidants reduced lipid and color deterioration of strip steaks at the end of the retail display period under high or atmosphericoxygen packaging conditions.
