Abstract

Finishing yearling steers fed a corn-based diet containing steep liquor had statistically similar live performance as steers fed the control diet. Numerically steers fed the steep containing diet were 6% more efficient. Steers fed steep liquor tended to contain less carcass fat (as measured by intramuscular marbling) less kidney, heart and pelvic fat, and less backfat thickness. When priced at $50/ton adding steep liquor at 10% of diet dry matter reduced feed cost for gain 9%.
