Short summary
The objective of this study was to evaluate the intake, digestibility, nitrogen balance, and performance of feedlot lambs fed diets containing crude glycerin. Although it did not affect the intake and digestibility of most nutrients, the inclusion of 100 and 200 g kg-1 DM of crude glycerin in lambs' diets tended to worsen performance, indicating that the ideal level of inclusion should be below 100 g kg-1 DM of crude glycerin.
