Impact of feeding diets containing reduced-oil distillers dried grains with solubles on growth performance and pork fat quality of growing-finishing pigs

Posted on January 14, 2016, in Research

Reduced oil concentration in DDGS has minimal, if any, effect on growth performance and carcass com The reduced oil concentration in DDGS generally improves pork fat quality when high levels of DDGS are added to growing-finishing diets, but the magnitude of this improvement is not proportional to the change in oil content among DDGS sources.

Recovering valuable biobased products from thin stillage (CDS) in corn ethanol plants

Posted on September 11, 2015, in Research

> Read the full report About this report: Thin stillage from corn ethanol plants is currently utilized by adding it to DDG and subsequently drying the blended streams to yield DDGS. This is convenient since it avoids treating the thin stillage as a waste stream. Generating new value-added products from the thin stillage stream offers an […]

Distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS) are not to blame for low-quality Baby Swiss cheese

Posted on July 1, 2015, in Research

> Read the full report About this report: Late-blowing in Swiss cheese (which can be described as an appearance of undesirable slits, cracks, splits or blown areas in the cheese), is a result of unwanted gas production. This is unacceptable to consumers, and causes economic loss to manufacturers. Previous work has raised concerns that feeding […]

> Listen to a radio segment on this article –By Liz Morrison Hog farmers around the globe are benefiting from AURI-funded research on feeding distillers grains, an important ethanol coproduct. Feed trials at the University of Minnesota, supported by AURI, the Minnesota Pork Board, and the Minnesota Corn Research & Promotion Council, are generating “powerful […]

Crude glycerol and cottonseed oil to control DDGS‐induced soft pork fat

Posted on November 24, 2014, in Research

View the full report:Crude glycerol and cottonseed oil to control DDGS-induced soft pork fat About this report: The objective of this study was to assess the effect of feeding crude glycerol or minimally‐refined cottonseed oil on growth performance, carcass composition and fat firmness of growing‐finishing pigs. Feed ingredient prices often drive pork producers to include […]

Energy utilization of oil extracted-dried distillers grains with solubles (OE-DDGS) in turkeys

Posted on October 17, 2014, in Research

Read the full report: Energy utilization of oil extracted-dried distillers grains with solubles (OE-DDGS) in turkeys  About this report: Much interest exists by poultry nutritionists regarding the amount of energy present in corn-derived dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) that can be utilized by meat-type poultry such as turkeys and chicken broilers. A recent change […]

Read the full report: Increasing the usage level of corn and distillers grains in market turkey diets through the use of supplemental amino acids About this report: The amount of corn and distillers grains (DDGS) in poultry diets is primarily determined by assessing  the  cost of providing essential nutrients and energy relative to other ingredients.  […]

heat stressed pigs

Better Wetter

Posted on January 8, 2014, in Ag Innovation News

–By Liz Morrison In the old days, pigs were fed slops, a watery slurry of kitchen scraps and grain. Now, “slops” — or liquid feeds — are coming around again, as pork producers seek new ways to use low-cost ethanol coproducts. A recently completed study, sponsored by AURI, the Minnesota Pork Board and the Minnesota […]

Do distillers grains with solubles and crude glycerin affect beef quality?

Posted on November 5, 2013, in Research

Read the complete report: Effects of Modified Distillers Grains with Solubles and Crude Glycerin Inclusion in Beef Cattle Finishing Diets on Beef Quality About this report: Increasing corn prices as well as changes in management have led feedlot producers to look for new, more economical feedstuffs for cattle finishing diets. Coproducts from the ethanol industry […]
