Wrinkle: How Do DDGS Impact Heifer Weights?
A significant amount of research exists on feeding distillers to dairy cows, swine, poultry, and beef. However, very little research exists on feeding DDGS to replacement dairy heifers. This lack of data for replacement heifers represents a missed opportunity for producers as DDGS provides an excellent source of nutrients that match very closely with the nutrient requirements of heifers.

Wrinkle: Open Sesame to Unlock Dakota Gold Treasure
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.
