Determining the nutritional value of DDGS can sometimes prove difficult. We can measure value based on dollars per unit of protein or energy or perhaps calculate as a percentage of corn. However, DDGS provides both protein and energy and as a result, when we calculate value based on a single nutrient such as protein, we underestimate DDGS value. Comparing nutritional value to other ingredients using software such as Sesame provides a compromise between these two different approaches.View full article
Enrich your aquafeeds with distillers grains. These partial fish meal replacements can function as an alternative protein source for your aquaculture.
Peer-reviewed research demonstrates DDGS differ based on production process. This information challenges industry perceptions about DDGS quality and suggests that nutritionists and ingredient buyers need to look at each DDGS differently when determining a value.View full article
The color of DDGS does not relate to amino acid digestibility, as shown in research done by Dr. Carl Parsons and sponsored by POET.View full article
A Transdisciplinary Approach to the Initial Validation of a Single Cell Protein as an Alternative Protein Source for Use in Aquafeeds

A series of trials (one growth trial and two digestibility trials) were conducted to evaluate the response of Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei to the inclusion of lipid-extracted distillers dried grain with solubles (LE-DDGS). Based on the observed results the inclusion of LE-DDGS up to 20% of the diet is recommended.View full article

Despite the apparent deficiency in lysine and the high fibre content in DDGS, considerable amounts of DDGS can be fed to omnivorous fish species without impact on growth or product quality. Nutrient variability is, however, an issue that needs to be considered when feeding DDGS to fish.View full article

Feeding trial results demonstrated that two initial HP-DDGS products achieved similar relative growth performance to a fish meal reference diet; these products also produced a similar feed conversion ratio (FCR).View full article

The use of a co-extruded soybean poultry by-product meal (CEPM) and flashed dried poultry by-product meal (FD-PBM) was evaluated as replacements for fish meal in a practical diet formulated to contain 32% crude protein and 8% lipid. Under the reported conditions, survival, FE, and PCE values were either improved or were not significantly influenced by the replacement of menhaden fish meal with either CEPM or FD-PBM.View full article
How do DDGS impact feedlot cattle fat levels? What are your options for pasture conservation alternatives? We’ve done the research for that.
The profile of Dakota Gold fits naturally with that of a lactating dairy cow. Low fat, high digestibility fiber and protein are the perfect blend for optimized milk production. Learn more about Dakota Gold characteristics.
Using dried distillers grains can lead to improved cost savings. Due to lower fat composition, Dakota Gold can be fed at higher inclusion rates and still maintain high carcass quality.
Improve your poultry’s nutritional quality and yield with our research. We’ve seen positive results in all types, from broiler chickens to layers.
