Dried Distillers Grain
Corn distillers grains is the main by-product of the distillation of alcohol and industrial ethanol from maize grain. Corn DDG is golden in colour.
Corn DDG is rich in protein and moderately rich in fat. One benefit of Corn DDG over cereal grains is that, as their energy is primarily provided as readily digestible fibre and fat, they have a propensity to alleviate incidence and severity of acidosis, laminitis and fatty liver caused by rumen starch fermentation.
As a rule, a maximum of 20% (diet DM) DDG should be included in the ration.
ME (MJME/kg DM) 12.8%
Crude Protein 30 %
NDF 25 %
Starch 6 %
