report description
There are a number of cereal grain by-products that are used as feed ingredients in livestock diets. Dried Brewers Grains is a by-product that has not been used to any extent in swine diets because of its relatively high fiber content and lack of palatability. This product contains about 26% protein and, when other sources of protein increased in price, it was an economical source of protein. The two experiments reported here were conducted to determine the value of dried brewers grains as an ingredient in diets for gestating swine.
