Wrinkle: DDGS vs SoyPass - Do DDGS Provide Ample Protein?

Beef, Dairy

Summary

In addition to cattle performance, we need to also consider the impact on feed costs when providing an additional protein source. Supplementing additional protein (especially expensive protein such as rumen “bypass” protein”) increases out-of-pocket expenses. If this additional protein does not improve performance, then profitability decreases compared with not supplementing the additional protein. This Wrinkle summarizes these results from the Nebraska research and demonstrates how Dakota Gold provides an economical source of quality protein which supports optimal animal performance.

Wrinkle: DDGS vs SoyPass - Do DDGS Provide Ample Protein?

Research from the University of Nebraska demonstrates that supplementing beef steers with either SoyPass or urea has minimal effect on cattle performance.
