Spent Grains - Selling for Animal Use

Recommended Posts

27 lbs is a little much...

A growing beef cow should eat 4-8lbs a day in grain. Depends on how good the grass is. Good grass, less grain. And grain should be no more than a third of it's total diet.

We have three cows...in the summer they get about 80 lbs grain total a week, in the winter 120 lbs. Chickens and pigs can eat more % grain in their diet.

Here's a study on feeding cows stillage.

Distiller’s Dried Grains with Solubles (DDGS) 400 page PDF with chapters specific to pigs, sheep goats, chickens, horses,...
Basically says it's all good and gives the specs and rates of feed.
I want to keep it for my animals, expand the herd, but trying to figure out how to dry it and store it economically.
Doesn't mean you can't have some hippie girls...sexist!
