A feedlot study evaluated the effects of NEXT ENHANCE® 300 (NEXT) essential oil concentration in finishing diets containing Rumensin® and Tylan® on yearling steer performance and carcass characteristics. Treatments consisted of 0, 15, 30, or 45 gram per ton of NEXT. Increasing NEXT concentration in the diet had no effect on DMI, ADG, or F:G. These data suggest that feeding increasing concentrations of NEXT had little impact on feedlot performance of large yearling steers.
