A very important ingredient that runs through almost all our feeds, has a protein average of 9%-11%. A high energy ingredient in the form of starch 57%, making it very fermentable for the ruminant animal. In pig and poultry diets it also offers a high energy component to the feed
Protein: 9.5 %
Distillers Dark Grains
A product of the ethanol production in the U.S. High in good quality protein and fibre which is well digestable to ruminants. A high energy, mid protein feed which is reasonably undegraded in the rumen. Low in starch due to its extraction in the brewing process and has the highest energy value of all the distillers grains, being higher in oil than barley distillers grains.
Derived from the wet milling of maize to extract starch for ethonal/alcohol production in the U.S. The Maize seed is rich in starch 60-70% being found mainly in the endosperm. The grain is then steeped in a mild sulphurous acid solution for 36-46 hours, this soften the kernel and releases the protein. The steep liquor is removed to make corn steep liquor and the fibre is pelleted with it to make maize gluten.
Has a protein of 20% with reasonable energy value, and very good digestibility.
Soya Bean Meal
Soya beans when crushed produce 3 main products; oil meal and hulls. The remainder is then heated and flaked. The oil is extracted and the remainder in toasted to reduce anti-nutritional factors and expel remaining solvents. Soya bean meal is the best quality protein source widely used in our feeds. It is high in protein, energy, and has a good amino acid profile being high in lysine. 95% of the nitrogen present is true protein, making it ideal for all livestock.
Rape Seed Meal
Palm Kernal Meal
Late Lactation Feeding 2020
Autumn grass has a lower energy value (lower sugar content) compared to spring/summer grass even through it can look very leafy and green. The response to ration in terms of milk yield is better in the autumn than at any other time of the year.
Low milk lactose levels can be an indication of not enough energy in the cows diet caused by low intake of wet, low-sugar, autumn grass.
With the above mentioned in mind, We at Southern Milling are promoting our Lacto 16 Dairy Nut.
