Abstract

This study suggests that pasture-reared cattle, when given access to soyhull/DDG self-fed by-products, exhibit excellent responses on both live performance and carcass traits, including CLA fatty acid levels.

Key Question

Does this system, using DDG feedings, produce satisfactory animal performance? Additionally, since the animals were fed very limited starch, were CLA levels similar to grass-only finished cattle?

Findings

Results showed that this system is a potential alternative to high-grain conventional beef finishing production in feedlots.
