A series of 3 experiments were conducted to determine the in vitro and in situ disappearance, preference, and performance of steers consuming increasing concentrations of a novel feedstuff called algae meal (ALG). In Exp. 1 and 2, 3 ruminally cannulated steers (998 ± 103 kg BW) and 4 treatments were utilized: a dry-rolled corn-based diet (CON), or 15% ALG (A15), 30% ALG (A30), or 45% ALG (A45) as a DM replacement of corn. Experiment 1 was performed as a 3 × 6 unbalanced Latin square with six 5… CONTINUE READING
