The availability of corn varieties with higher oil content may offer an advantage as feed stuffs for various species and classes of livestock. Higher oil content increases the energy density in the feed stuff, potentially leading to improved performance and/or efficiency of gain. Additional benefits suggested are dust reduction, reduced energy for processing and improved palatability. Most research to date has been with swine and poultry diets. The object of these trials was to evaluate the effect of high oil corn com pared to normal corn in pre-weaning and post-weaning diets for lambs.
