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.
