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.

Wrinkle: Does Particle Size of DDGS Affect Digestibility?

Researchers have demonstrated that reducing DDGS particle size improves the feeding value for pigs. However, many individuals have questions about the method of grinding and potential impact of stage of production (growing vs finishing) on nutrient digestibility. The study (Acosta, et al., 2020) shows that while the method of grinding has little impact on digestibility, body weight and particle size do affect the digestibility of nutrients in DDGS.
