Dried Distillers Grain

Modified Distillers Grain

Wet Distillers Grain

Distillers Grain is a co-product of Dry-Mill ethanol production. It contains the remaining portion of the corn, enzymes, and yeast after the starch is removed in the ethanol process. Distillers Grain is an extremely palatable product containing (26-30%) protein and an energy level equal or above that of corn. Distillers Grain is commonly used as an energy and protein source in finishing and growing rations. Distillers Grains are found in three forms:


• Wet - 30-35% Dry matter and is available on a limited basis. This product can be a good candidate for seasonal stockpiling.

• Dry - 89-91% Dry matter and can be stored for long periods of time, if kept out of the elements. Typically available and can be contracted.

• Modified - 45-52% Dry Matter and stores longer than wet distillers. This product is more available than wet distillers and can be contracted.

Wet Corn Gluten


Wet Corn Gluten

Wet Corn Gluten

Wet Corn Gluten is a co-product of Wet-Mill corn processing production.  It consists of the outside bran portion of the kernel combined with Corn Steep Liquor.  The result is a feed containing 17-20% protein along with good levels of digestible fiber and energy.  Wet Corn Gluten can be fed in a number of ways, but is most commonly used in forage-based growing rations.

Pelleted Corn Gluten


Pelleted Corn Gluten

Pelleted Corn Gluten

Pelleted Corn Gluten is the dry form of Wet Corn Gluten and is typically fed as a grain replacer.  Gluten pellets also work well as a protein source and an energy supplement for pasture.



Soyhull Pellets

Soyhull Pellets

Soyhulls are a co-product of soybean processing.  Soyhulls are the soybean seed coat on the outside of the grain that are either fed loose or in pelleted form.  Soyhulls contain 8-12% protein and are high in digestible fiber which makes them a high quality hay substitute.  Soyhulls are also considered an energy source in forage based rations and should be compared to corn in value. 

Wheat Mids


Wheat Mids are a co product of wheat processing and consists of fine particles of wheat bran, wheat shorts, wheat germ, and wheat flour.  Wheat mids contain 16-19% protein and a fair amount of energy. Mids can be in loose or pelleted form and are generally used as a grain replacer.

Rice Hulls


Rice Hulls

Rice Hulls

Rice Hulls are traditionally used as an ingredient in ruminant rations.  Rice Hulls are an excellent source of fiber; however the digestibility and nutritive values are low. Rice Hulls can typically be added to rations at levels from 5% to 10%. Because of their low energy levels it is highly recommended they are used with other protein and energy sources.

Ground Corn Cobs


Ground Corn Cobbs

Ground Corn Cobs

Ground Corn Cobs are an excellent source of fiber and scratch for ruminants. They can be used as a partial roughage replacement.  Cobs are excellent in helping ruminant health; the characteristics of cobs allow them to float to the top of the rumen creating a mat, which in turn helps maintain healthy rumen activity. Cobs are often added to weaning and back grounding rations at rates of 5% to 15%.

  • Dry Matter: 90%
  • Crude Protein: 3.5%
  • Crude Fat: 0.6%
  • Crude Fiber: 35.5%
  • NEG: 9 (Macl/cwt)
  • NEM: 48 (Mcal/cwt)
  • TDN: 48%


Cottonseed Hull Pellets

Corn oil – An energy dense liquid that can be added to the ration to increase fat and energy.

Soy Oil is a highly concentrated source of feed energy. Vegetable fats are highly digestible for the rumen. Soy Oil is used for increased rate of gain, improved feed efficiency, and improved palatability. The most common practice for using soy oil is for dust reduction and wind loss.

  • Total Fatty Acid:  90.0% min.
  • Moisture: .25% Max
  • TDN: 184%
  • NEG: 2.65 (Mcal/lb)
  • NEM:  2.65 (Mcal/lb)


Rolled corn is an excellent source of energy for the ruminating animal. High levels of corn are used in finish rations. It is our belief that very low levels of corn, if any, should be used in a weaning or back grounding ration. When used in combination with higher fat co-products the starch from corn and the fat from the co-product can have a tendency to cause a reverse effect in the rumen resulting in lower feed efficiencies and reduced rate of gain. Rolling or cracking the kernel is recommended to obtain the best efficiencies.

Hominy Feed contains the corn bran, germ, and some of the starchy portion from the corn kernel. It is about equal to ground corn in feeding value and is very palatable for livestock. Common rations contain 10 to 15 percent hominy feed; however successes have been seen using up to 50%. Hominy feed is a good energy source and is higher in protein than corn. Hominy Feed is very palatable and normally safe to feed at higher levels.
