Wrinkle: DDGS vs SoyPass - Do DDGS Provide Ample Protein?

What additional protein do I need to include when I’m feeding distillers?” We often get this question from producers or nutritionists because they feel additional types (ruminally available vs “bypass”) of protein will promote animal performance. To address this question, University of Nebraska researchers conducted two experiments to measure cattle response to either urea or SoyPass. Results from both studies provided additional insights on this very important question

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.
