Abstract

Górka, P., McKinnon, J. J. and Penner, G. B. 2013. Short Communication: Use of high-lipid by-product pellets as a partial replacement for barley grain and canola meal in finishing diets for beef steers. Can. J. Anim. Sci. 93: 523-528. The objectives were to determine the effect of the inclusion rate (0%, CON; 30%, HLP30; 60%, HLP60) of high-lipid by-product pellets (HLP) as a partial replacement for barley grain and canola meal on feed intake and growth performance of steers (n=264). Dry matter intake and gain:feed ratio were greater (P<0.01) for HLP30 and HLP60 relative to CON. This study indicates that up to 60% of the barley grain and canola meal in finishing diets for steers can be replaced with HLP, although feed efficiency may be compromised.
