Title: Value-enhanced high oil corn for fedlot cattle
Author: Bramble, Tyler Cole
Abstract: Two experiments were conducted to investigate the effects of steam -flaking and feeding high -oil Corn (HO ) to finishing feedlot steers . In experiment 1 , 16 crossbred teers were fed a diet containing either typical corn (T ) or HO steam -flaked to either 0 .31 kg /L (24 ) or 0 .36 kg /L 28 ) for 127 d to determine effects on feedlot performance a carcass characteristics . Diets were balanced by including HO into the diet at 75 % of DM whereas T as included at 72 % of diet DM with 2 .8 % added fat . Overall average daily gain (ADG ) and dry matter (DM ) intake were unaffected (P > 0 .10 ) by flake density or by corn variety . However , feed -to -gain (FG ) was superior (P < 0 .05 ) for HO -24 as compared to T -24 and HO -28 . Carcass characteristics were unaffected (P > 0 .10 ) by treatments . Results indicate that HO can replace T plus added fat in feedlot diets , and more extensive processing (lower flake density ) of HO will enhance its feeding value .
