Research found that feeding corn DDG or fat-supplemented wheat DDG reduced the amount of methane produced in the animal’s rumen.

The environmental pros and cons of feeding dried distillers grains

Cattle fed DDGs produce less methane and more nitrogen, Lethbridge Research Station scientists have found

In beef production, finding a balance between feed costs and environmental health takes continuous navigation. Feed is one of the highest on-farm costs and when the price of barley, corn and wheat rises, producers often turn to using dried distillers grains (DDGs) in their rations. While this ethanol co-product lowers methane production in cattle by […] Read more
