Requirements will differ depending on the current diet. It is recommended a maximum of 20% (of total ration) be fed on a dry matter basis. DDGS can be mixed with silage in the paddock or on the feed pad. Consult your nutritionist or farm consultant to determine the optimal inclusion level for your particular situation.
Distiller’s Dried Grains with Soluble (DDGS)
Distiller’s Dried Grains with Soluble (DDGS) is the dried residue remaining after the starch fraction of maize (Corn DDGS) or sorghum (Sorghum DDGS) is fermented with yeasts to produce ethanol. Following fermentation, the ethanol is removed by distillation and the remaining fermentation residues are dried.
DDGS is an excellent source of digestible protein and energy for cattle. It is highly palatable with a good source of readily available low-cost organic phosphorus and high in protein. The high energy level of DDGS is derived predominantly from fibre and fat and does not cause any risk of developing acidosis.
