Sixty steers were individually fed finishing diets to evaluate if corn bran form affects the energy value of wet corn gluten feed. Corn bran replaced 40% (DM basis) dry-rolled corn as dry (86% DM), wet (37% DM), or rehydrated (37% DM). Dry matter intake was higher for steers fed dry bran compared with other treatments. Daily gain and efficiency were 15 and 18% higher for the control diet compared with the average of corn bran diets. Gain and efficiency were similar among corn bran diets. Corn bran form has limited influence on the energy value of wet corn gluten feed.
