Grains Council Updates DDGS Handbook Including Chapters on Swine Diets
October 10, 2012 —
To update current and potential customers on advances in research and end-users' experience in feeding US distiller's dried grains with solubles (DDGS), the US Grains Council has released a third edition of A Guide to Distiller's Dried Grains with Solubles, with several chapters devoted to DDGS feeding in swine.
The third edition is greatly expanded over the previous edition. New chapters and expanded feeding sections provide greater detail in feeding methods. For example, the chapter on feeding DDGS to beef cattle doubled in length and includes details on beef quality and yield, as well as details on feeding DDGS to replacement heifers. The handbook also provides detail on the nutrient composition and digestibility of DDGS and recommended laboratory analytical procedures. Details on the physical and chemical characteristics of DDGS and answers to commonly asked questions are included. Additional chapters focus on quality indicators and feed safety issues that may be of importance to buyers and end-users. Finally, a section on US DDGS suppliers allows global buyers and end-users to seek additional information and opportunities to buy.
