Spent grain, non-GMO

Spent grain is a by-product of brewing. It contains non-soluble converter mash components – lees, germs, husk and sodium. The product is dried and granulated.

Spent grain is commonly used by dairy cow and pig breeders as a feed additive.

Most feeds contain protein absorbed in the rumen (70-90%) including silage, forage and rapeseed meal. The excess protein, not absorbed in the rumen is expelled as urea. High concentration of urea may promote metabolic diseases and reduce milk production efficiency. The feed must be balanced to include protein absorbed in the intestine. It is a key factor during the first 100 days of lactation due to the energy deficit affecting the protein absorption in the rumen.

Introducing the feed with protein absorbed in the small intestine:

  • improves feed usage rate
  • improves milk production efficiency
  • improves chemical composition of milk
  • improves protein content in milk
  • reduces interpregnancy interval
  • reduces somatic cells in milk
  • improves economic efficiency

Up to 85% protein in the dried barley spent grain is absorbed in the small intestine.

Protein content is min. 25%. 

The feed also contains amino acids, vitamin A and E.

Max. daily ration: 2 kg per day per cow.

Daily ration:

Maximum daily ration – 2 kg per animal.

1 kg per day per animal (2 x 0.5 kg ) yield increase by approx. 10%

2 kg daily per animal (2 x 1 kg ) yield increase by approx. 18%

Yield increase depends on breed and food ration.

Composition:

Moisture content:  12.07%

Protein: 25.78%

Fibre: 20.31%

Ash: 4.98%

Oil: 9.81%

Benefits:

high protein content with no added sugar to prevent hyperactivity in horses, slow energy release

Spent grain

Why use spent grain?

A true revolution in cattle and swine feeding used as a protein supplement.

Reduces milk production costs. Contains micro- and macronutrients, vitamin B, A and E. 45% of the spent grain protein is absorbed in the rumen and will not increase urea content in milk. Any protein not absorbed in the rumen is 85% soluble in the small intestine. It makes it a protein-rich feed.

Maximum daily ration for cattle

  • dairy cow 5-7 kg/day
  • calf 2-4 kg/day
  • fat stock 2-3 kg per 100 kg body weight

Maximum daily ration for pigs 

  • fattening pig 2-4 kg/day
  • low-efficiency sow 3-4 kg/day

Shelf life:

6 months from the date of manufacture.
