Abstract

Efficient production by dairy cows depends on optimal protein nutrition. Canola meal (CM) and dried corn distillers' grains (DDGS) have been primary protein meals on Western USA dairies for >10 years, but a lower relative price of soybean meal (SBM) has created interest in how best to include it in ...
