Rumensin® Ruminal Delivery Devices put in place 76 days prior to steers entering a feedlot resulted in an average reduction in daily dry matter intake of 3.6% and a small 1.8% increase in daily gain during a controlled 28-day feeding phase. All steers were fed an 85% concentrate feedlot diet fortified with 30g/ton of Rumensin® and 10 g/ton of tylan®.
