Wrinkle: Formulating Swine Diets with DDGS to Reduce Feed Costs

Swine

Research Summary

Research demonstrates that including DDGS in swine diets can reduce feed costs and improve profit per pig during the finishing phases. However, research has also shown that feeding greater amounts of high-fat DDGS will negatively affect animal performance and fat quality. Reduced-fat DDGS such as Dakota Gold minimize these negative effects on fat quality while still supporting optimal animal performance. This strategy provides a good option during times of tight profit margins in the swine industry.
