Hello, With corn prices still on the rise feeding out our steers is getting expensive quickly. The local elevators have corn screenings and sell them on average 30% below the market price. I've heard several times, that because most of the corn is cracked that mold can be a problem? I was wondering if anyone feeds their steers screenings and have had any problems with them molding? Also i was thinking of grinding some hay with the hammer mill to mix in with the screenings? Any tips or suggestions? Thanks

There is a local mill here and the owner has made a good living for many years hauling screenings from Indiana and blending them with soy and molasses to make a mixed complete feed.

I fed the screenings as a full feed. I took into account the TDN of the screenings as compared to shelled corn and adjusted the volume I fed accordingly. Those problems with toxins do happen also in shelled/cracked/ground corn also. The safest thing to do is have the batch tested, I did it once and was fine and then other times I have fed some pretty moldy looking stuff and was fine. Rare, but testing does give you a piece of mind.

The mold i heard of several times is mycotoxins such as vomitoxin? Hayray when you where feeding screenings did you feed them as full feed or part of a mixed percentage? Thanks

I have fed screenings many times and never recall mold problems.
