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
Improve your poultry’s nutritional quality and yield with our research. We’ve seen positive results in all types, from broiler chickens to layers.
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

As oil in DDGS is removed, both nutritive and non-nutritive components will be concentrated in the DDGS, including protein and fiber. This study sought to determine the metabolizable energy content of DDGS samples in young turkeys.View full article

The objectives of this study were to determine the maximum inclusion rates of a low fat distillers dried grains with solubles (LF-DDGS) in broiler diets fed during the finisher I phase (28 to 42 d) and the finisher II phase (43 to 56 d) and the subsequent effects on live performance and carcass characteristics.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.
Enrich your aquafeeds with distillers grains. These partial fish meal replacements can function as an alternative protein source for your aquaculture.
What are distillers grains? What’s the best inclusion rates for feed? Learn that and more with Dr. DDGS.
