EFFECTS OF AGRONOMIC FACTORS ON YIELD AND QUALITY OF WHOLE CORN PLANTS AND THE IMPACT OF FEEDING HIGH CONCENTRATIONS OF CORN SILAGE IN DIETS CONTAINING DISTILLERS GRAINS TO FINISHING CATTLE
D. B. Burken, B. L. Nuttelman, J. L. Gramkow, A. L. McGee, K. M. Sudbeck, S. E. Gardine, T. C. Hoegemeyer, T. J. Klopfenstein and G. E. Erickson

Corn plants were sampled over 2 consecutive years to assess the effects of corn hybrid maturity class, plant population, and harvest time on whole corn plant quality and yield in Nebraska. A finishing experiment evaluated the substitution of corn with corn silage in diets with corn modified distillers grains with solubles (MDGS). The first 2 harvest dates were at the mid- and late-silage harvest times whereas the final harvest was at the grain harvest stage of plant maturity. Whole plant yields increased as harvest time progressed (yr 1 quadratic P < 0.01; yr 2 linear P < 0.01). (continued)

DIGESTIBILITY AND PERFORMANCE OF STEERS FED VARYING INCLUSIONS OF CORN SILAGE AND MODIFIED DISTILLERS GRAINS WITH SOLUBLES TO PARTIALLY REPLACE CORN IN FINISHING DIETS
D. B. Burken, B. L. Nuttelman, M. J. Jolly-Briethaupt, J. L. Gramkow, S. E. Gardine, T. J. Klopfenstein, J. C. MacDonald and G. E. Erickson

Two finishing and 1 digestibility experiment evaluated the partial substitution of corn with corn silage and corn modified distillers grains with solubles (MDGS). Steers were used in Exp. 1 (n = 295; 467 ± 52 kg) and Exp. 2 (n = 225; BW = 348 ± 27 kg) in a 2 × 2 + 1 factorial arrangement of treatments with factors including corn silage (15 or 45%) and MDGS (20 or 40%) plus a control diet consisting of 5% cornstalks and 40% MDGS.
