Abstract

In this experiment, feedingreduced-fat distillers grains(RF-DDGS)as 20% DM of a total mixed ration (TMR)supplemented with lysine did not negatively influence flavor attributes of baby Swiss cheese.Eye appearancein all cheeseswas atypical,but was not related to diet. Any defects in appearance of Baby Swiss cheese appeared in both control and RF-DDGS fed cows and therefore the defects observed can be attributed to the make procedure itself rather than to of feeding RF-DDGS. The results indicate that lactating Holstein dairy cows can be fed RF-DDGS as 20% DM of a TMR without negatively affecting usability of milk forproduction of Baby Swiss cheese.
