Remedies of high dietary sulfur levels in distillers grains diets

Research at Texas Tech University did not observe any effects of several ionophores (lasalocid sodium, monensin sodium, and laidlomycin propionate) or antibiotics (chlortetracycline hydrochloride and tylosin tartrate) or combinations of ionophores and antibiotics (monensin sodium + tylosin tartrate and lasalocid sodium + chlortetracycline hydrochloride) on ruminal H2S concentration when supplemented in feedlot rations containing 0.42 percent dietary S.

Sulfur (S) is an essential nutrient required for normal growth and reproduction of bacteria in the rumen of cattle.
