High-moisture corn utilization in finishing cattle


, : High-moisture corn utilization in finishing cattle. Journal of Animal Science 69(4): 1645-1656

Two finishing trials, one laboratory trial and one metabolism trial were conducted with the following objectives: 1) to determine the associative effects of feeding high-moisture corn (HMC) with either dry-rolled grain sorghum (DRGS) or dry-rolled corn (DRC) and 2) to evaluate HMC when harvested at different moisture levels, stored in different structures, or fed as whole or rolled HMC. In Trial 1, yearling steers (BW, 328 kg) were fed diets containing mixtures of HMC and DRGS. As level (0, 33, 100%, as percentage of grain DM) of DRGS increased, ADG (P less than .03) and gain/feed (P less than .001) decreased linearly; gain/feed tended to be affected quadratically (P = .14). In Trial 2, yearling steers (BW, 382 kg) fed HMC, stored whole in an upright, oxygen-limiting silo and rolled coarsely before feeding, gained faster (1.46 vs 1.36 kg/d) and more efficiently (.142 vs. .131 gain/feed) than steers fed whole HMC (P less than .01). In Trial 3, as length of storage of bunker HMC increased, in vitro rate of starch digestion and soluble N content increased (20.4 and 36.8%, respectively) and grain pH decreased (10.9%). In Trial 4, steers fed HMC or a mixture of 75% HMC with 25% DRGS had similar ruminal pH throughout a grain adaptation period, but total ruminal VFA were greater (P less than .005) for steers fed HMC alone. These data are interpreted to suggest that feeding a mixture of HMC, ground and stored in a bunker or silo bag, with DRGS will result in a 3.2% associative effect. However, no associative effects were measured when a mixture of HMC, stored whole and fed whole or rolled, and DRC were fed.
