Two experiments were conducted to etermine the effects of sorghum-based distillers dried grains with solubles in isocaloric diets for nursery and finishing pigs. Rate and efficiency of gain in nursery pigs were decreased with 45% or more distillers grains. For finishing pigs, efficiency of gain was improved as distillers grains was increased to 60% of the diet, and carcass fatness was increased by about .1 inch at the highest concentration.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996
