Abstract

A growing study was conducted to evaluate the effect of residue quality due to harvest method and inclusion of supplemental rumen undegradable protein on performance of growing steers. The residue harvested with an alternative method to minimize stem increased gain and improved efficiency compared to conventionally harvested corn residue. Inclusion of rumen undegradable protein increased gain and improved feed effi ciency compared to diets without supplemental rumen undegradable protein.
