Evaluation of Growth Performance, Nutrient Utilization, Metabolic Profile, and Onset of Puberty in Dairy Heifers Fed Reduced-Fat Distillers Dried Grains in Replacement of Forage in Limit-Fed Rations

South Dakota State University/Jill Anderson

The research will be used to determine how energy and protein from reduced-fat distillers grains is utilized in replacement of energy and protein from forage in limit-feeding scenarios for dairy heifers and the effects on growth, metabolic profile and onset of puberty.
