Summary and Implications

A total of 124 Angus heifers split into treatment and control groups with three replicates were utilized to compare a bunker stored mixture of wet distillers’ grains with solubles and ground hay to a normal growing ration for developing heifers. Heifers receiving the mixture gained slower, were less efficient in feed conversion and had numerical lower reproductive rates than those on a control ration consisting of corn, haylage, soybean meal and a mineral balancer. However, neither the control or treatment ration mixtures achieved goals set out at the beginning of the trial for growth, efficiency and pregnancy rates.
