Abstract
Thirty-two steers were used in a feedlot trial to determine the effect of replacing ground maize in a highly concentrated cattle fattening ration, with 10,20 and 30 per cent coffee hulls. Eight animals were fed on each diet and were individually fed ad libitum for 89 days. Feed records were recorded daily and the steers were weighed once every 14 days. The addition of 10 or 20 percent coffee hulls did not affect intake, gains or feed conversions, however the addition of 30 per cent coffee hulls reduced (P> 0.001)feed intake, gains and feed conversion.
