A de‐oiled distillers grains (dDGS) product was evaluated as a primary supplemental CP source in finishing diets. The 3 dietary treatments used were: SBM/Urea) as a control, typical of feedlot diets; dDGS) where dDGS replaced all of the SBM and some urea; and dDGS/SBM) where a 90% dDGS/10% SBM (N basis) blend was fed iso‐nitrogenous to the other diets. Eighteen pens of 8 steers each were fed these finishing diets for 132 d. There were no differences in steer performance or carcass traits attributable to diet. The dDGS product can be used effectively to replace oilseed meals and some of the urea in finishing diets.
