The objective was to determine if end-of-test residual metabolizable energy intake (RMEI) is correlated with RMEI values calculated earlier in the test on steers fed two forage (silage) or four forage-grain diets. As the days on test increased the variation in RMEI decreased in all diets. In all but the 85% alfalfa + 15% barley grain diet, test duration for RMEI may be reduced from 105 to 84 d. In the 100% alfalfa silage diet, it may be further reduced from 105 to 63 d (Spearman r = 0.90; Pearson r = 0.94; P < 0.01). The duration of testing required to obtain reliable estimates of RMEI may therefore also depend on the type of diet being fed.
