Need

Feature

Benefit

Drive intake

Very palatable feed.

Can stimulate intakes of less palatable feeds, increasing milk and meat production. 

Reduce feed costs

High quality protein and a good source of bypass protein. 

Allows proportions of soya and low protein concentrates to be replaced whilst providing higher total energy.

Improve rumen efficiency

Distillery products contain high levels of yeast fragments particularly in the solubles fraction.

Stimulates rumen activity, promoting fibre digestion and overall feed efficiency.

Minimise risk of acidosis

High proportion of the energy as digestible fibre and oil.

Allows energy intakes to be increased without increasing the risk of acidosis associated with high starch feeds.

Feeding flexibility

Consistent and durable pellet.

Suitable for use in automated and floor feeding systems. Can be transferred to feeders via auger systems.

The predicted responses (benefits) assume that the specified nutrient, physical or structural dietary components are limiting livestock performance in the current ration.

Availability, handling and storage

Scottish Distillers Maize are available, UK wide, as bulk tipped or blown loads. Like all dry feeds, they should be stored in a secure shed, bunker, bin or hopper and kept cool, dry and free from vermin.

Additional information

Method of production

Whole maize is milled to reduce its particle size and provide the substrate for fermentation. The starch in the grain is gelatinised with steam, treated to convert it into sugars and then fermented to produce alcohol. The alcohol is then distilled out of the mixture; the remaining grain residues are mixed with some of the liquid fraction, dried and pelleted.  

Quality Assurance

Scottish Distillers Maize are FEMAS assured. Scottish Distillers Maize (Maize distillers dried grains and soluables) are listed under number 1.12.11 in the EU Catalogue of Feed Materials.

Legal disclaimer

Suggested feeding rates are produced as a guide only and many other factors may have an overriding effect on animal response; no performance guarantee can be given. Rations should be carefully balanced for energy and protein, contain sufficient forage to maintain rumen function and be fortified with an appropriate vitamin and mineral supplement. Animals must have constant access to clean water.
