Objective: To determine the growing calf response when fed Enogen Feed corn silage containing an alpha amylase expression trait.

 Study Description: Crossbred steers of Tennessee origin (n = 352) were used to determine the effects on performance when fed Enogen Feed corn silage with either Enogen Feed corn or control corn at ad libitum intake.
