The purpose of this experiment was to determine the effect of inoculating corn forage which was more optimal in moisture content than that in the 1982 study with a Lactobacillus plantarum fermentation product. The response to inoculation was compared with untreated silage in terms of feedlot performance of growing steers fed high-silage rations. Preservation of silage dry matter, chemical quality and utilization of nutrients were also determined.
