NRC Diet Analysis of Beef and Dairy Cattle Diets Performance and meat quality of beef steers fed corn-based or bread by-product based diets P. J. Guiroy, D. G. Fox, D. H. Beermann and D. J. Ketchen. J Anim Sci 2000. 78:784-790. Corn is now being used in the production of ethanol for fuel. This has affected the cost of grains used for feeding feedlot cattle. In 2000 scientist at Cornell university conducted a trail on beef cattle by substituting bead by product for whole shelled corn. They examined the effects on meat quality and performance on 120 northeastern bred steers. The bakers by product, or waste, was analyzed and compared to the NRC data. The BBy used in this study contained 16% CP (75.6% degradable), 3% NDF, 75.1% NSC (70% as starch), and 3.3% fat. The study showed that each time an analysis was done, the bakers waste showed uniform nutritional values. The recommendation from the researchers when using bbw is that each time a producer gets bakers waste from a different source, he should have it analyzed to determine the appropriate amount to feed because processing of bakers waste can be very different. Below is a chart of nutrition in the control and treatment groups. Dry whole
