Performance, Carcass Traits And Fatty Acid Profiles Of Yearling Beef Cattle Supplemented With Self-Fed Byproducts On Pasture, Daniel Dean Kiesling

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Due to rising costs of conventional feedstuffs, more research has been focused on feeding non-conventional feedstuffs, such as byproducts of ethanol production or further processing of grains (i.e. soyhulls). Because of the health benefits of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) shown in studies on laboratory animals, consumer interest in foods enriched with CLA has increased. The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of finishing yearling market steers on pasture supplemented with combinations of self-fed byproducts on live animal performance, carcass traits and fatty acid profiles; specifically CLA. British and Continental crossbred beef steers (n = 162, BW = 404 ...
