Abstract

A finishing experiment evaluated the effects of harvesting drier corn silage on performance. Factors were corn silage DM (37 or 43%) and inclusion in the finishing diet (15 or 45%). As corn silage inclusion increased, DMI did not diff er, ADG decreased, and F:G increased. As DM of corn silage was increased, no differences in DMI, ADG, or F:G were observed at either 15 or 45% inclusion. Ensiling drier silage increased tonnage with no negative impact on performance.
