Q&A: Can a person run into problems feeding too much distillers?
Dr. Galen Erickson, Associate Professor of Animal Science. Animal Science, University of Nebraska
A: We do not routinely run rations because we would need to know much more information. For example, I would need to know all possible ingredients available, their nutrient composition (we could get close on this), but most importantly, the cost of these ingredients. In the case of backgrounding calves, it is also very important to know what type of performance you would like to have (mainly ADG for backgrounding calves).
