Wrinkle: Can Dakota Gold Replace Alfalfa Hay?
Most dairy producers know that when they feed Dakota Gold or other non-POET DDGS, they can replace ingredients like soybean meal and corn. However, very few producers realize that they can also replace a portion of the fiber coming from other sources. Fiber (as measured by NDF) comprises approximately 1/3 of the nutrients in DDGS. Furthermore, this fiber represents an extremely digestible source which provides additional energy to the dairy cow.

Wrinkle: Research Challenges the Perception of DDGS & Milk Fat Depression
Feeding ingredients that contain greater amounts of unsaturated fat tend to increase the chance of milk-fat depression in lactating dairy cows. Unfortunately, many producers saw this effect when they first started feeding DDGS prior to the ethanol industry's movement towards oil extraction. As a result, many producers and nutritionists still perceive that DDGS causes cows to produce less milk fat. However, a summary of peer-reviewed data challenges this perception.
Wrinkle: How Do DDGS and ProPellets Provide Options for Cow/Calf Producers?
Since DDGS provides a good source of highly digestible energy and protein, beef cattle producers can feed other lower quality ingredients in combination with DDGS and still meet the nutrient requirements of the animal. Research from the University of Nebraska now provides data to demonstrate the value of including DDGS in different beef feeding programs.
Mycotoxin Management in DDGS - Maximizing Your Profits
This webinar will provide insights from Dr. Max Hawkins of Alltech and how producers can effectively manage mycotoxins in DDGS. The webinar will also include brief information from Dr. Berit Foss of POET, highlighting how POET manages mycotoxin risks in DDGS to ensure that Dakota Gold provides the most value to their customer, all while reducing ration costs.
