Dry rolled maize and high-moisture harvested sorghum grain were provided in diets of 100% dry rolled maize 75:25, 50:50, 25:75 and 100% high-moisture sorghum grain. Diets were given at 2% of body weight (dry basis) in a 5 x 5 Latin square using Hereford-Angus heifers (693 lb) equipped with ruminal, duodenal and ileal T-type cannulae. Total tract starch digestibility decreased linearly with more high-moisture sorghum grain.
