Yeast culture has been used in corn and milo diets to improve animal performance and stabilize shifts in ruminal microbial populations due to diet changes. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of yeast culture in a barley and potato processing residue diet on steer growth performance, apparent diet digestibility, carcass characteristics, ruminal VFA, and liver mineral concentrations. Seventy-two crossbred beef steers were assigned to one of two treatments in a completely… CONTINUE READING
