Ensiling of livestock manure has been given much attention because of the potential recovery of valuable nutrients which can be used as a feedstuff for livestock. Also, if the livestock manure is recycled, other benefits become apparent such as reducing manure disposal problems, reducing air and land pollutional problems and reducing feed costs to the producer. The objectives of this study were: to run a pilot scale test to determine if the fermentation process would perform equal to that in the laboratory studies; to produce enough feed for actual feeding trials to finishing cattle; to determine if the fermented product would be accepted by cattle; and to examine the performance of the cattle fed the fermented product as compared to cattle fed a control diet.
