Corn DDGS (Distillers Dried Grains with Solubles)
Corn DDGS is the main by-product of the distillation of alcohol from maize grain. Corn DDGS is more efficient ingredient than maize grain in cattle, poultry and fish diet and has shown to decrease methane produce from enteric fermentation when they replace it. The grain can be primarily separated into germ bran and endosperm, which is subjected to distillation.
Corn DDGS is valuable feed ingredients, rich in protein, moderately rich in fat and can be fed to all classes of livestock as it contains approximately 85% of the energy value in corn.
- It is a very good source of crude protein, crude fiber, available phosphorous, unsaturated fatty acids and essential amino acids.
- It reduces feed cost by replacing Soya and other protein sources in the diet as the price of soya DOC is very high and often fluctuates.
- Poultry fed with corn DDGS have a better feed intake ,feed conversion ratio, body weight, it improves meat and egg quality by enriching it with omega-3 acids(linoleum acid) and improves egg yolk color.
- It improves the digestibility in cattle and increase the milk production
