A finishing study was conducted to assess the effects of feeding increasing amounts of wet distillers grains plus solubles (WDGS) with and without corn oil removal. Oil removal and WDGS inclusion did not interact. Compared to normal oil, de-oiled WDGS did not impact ADG, F:G, or carcass characteristics. Increasing inclusion of WDGS decreasedDMI and F:G linearly, with no change in ADG. Regardless of inclusion, oil removal via centrifugation had little impact on finishing cattle performance.
