ABSTRACT


Two stage experimental fattening was conducted on 64 young Polish
Holstein-Friesian bulls of black and white type. Trial group was fed with concentrate
containing 23.5% of corn dried distillers grain with solubles (DDGS) from 250
to 400-420 kg body weight, and 13.5% DDGS in finishing stage up to 570 kg body
weight. The effect of extracted rapeseed meal replacing with corn DDGS on performance,
carcass characteristics and fatty acid profile of intramuscular fat in muscullus
longissimus dorsi
was determined. Dried distillers grain with solubles supplementation
caused significant (228 g) increase of average daily gain (ADG) in the first
stage of experiment. Feed conversion rate (FCR, gain: feed) in trial group was
0.036 kg higher in the first, and 0.007 kg lower in the second stage of experiment
comparing to the control group. Improved ADG and FCR in the first stage involved
the 22 days decrease of experimental fattening period. Carcass dissection results
and prime cuts percentage did not differ between trial and control group in none
of fattening periods. Introduction of corn dried distiller grain with solubles
into feed concentrate indicated an improvement of fatty acid composition, including
increased level of C18:2 fatty acid in intramuscular fat.

Key words: young bulls, fattening, DDGS, slaughter value, dissection, fatty acids.
