Modified wet distillers grains with solubles (MDGS) were supplemented on the ground to yearling steers with access to native range during summer grazing. Supplemented steers had greater ADG than non-supplemented steers, and were heavier entering the feedlot. Supplemented steers also required 24 fewer days in the feedlot to reach a constant end point, compared to non-supplemented steers. Energy calculations suggest 1.0 lb of MDGS replaced 0.65 lb of summer range.
