Ruminal pH (SEM = 0.15) from steers fed diets including a corn-based growing diet (CNT) or coproduct blends with increasing concentrations of dietary fat from condensed corn distillers’ solubles (CDS). Diets fed to steers contained either CNT (♦) or 0 (■), 10 (▲), 19 (×), or 27% (●) CDS. Ruminal pH decreased (P < 0.01) over time. No effects of treatment or treatment × time were detected (P ≥ 0.84).

Ruminal methane emissions (SEM = 11.99) from steers fed diets including a corn-based growing diet (CNT) or coproduct blends with increasing concentrations of dietary fat from condensed corn distillers’ solubles (CDS). Diets fed to steers contained either CNT or 0, 10, 19, or 27% CDS. There was no effect (P ≥ 0.37) of diet on ruminal methane emission.
