Why consider co products for sheep l.jpg

Why consider co-products for sheep

  • Cost

    • Energy and crude protein (cents/lb)

    • Forage substitution

  • Animal performance

    • Growth and lactation

Co product concerns and conditions l.jpg

Co-product Concerns and Conditions

  • Handling and Storage

  • Unique Nutrient Profiles

    • Minerals -phosphorus, sulfur, copper

    • Level of fat

What are dried distillers grains with solubles l.jpg

What are dried distillers grains with solubles?

  • The dry-mill ethanol production process uses only the starch portion of the corn, which is about 70% of the kernel. All the remaining nutrients – protein, fat, minerals, and vitamins – are concentrated into distillers grain.

  • A bushel of corn will produce at least 2.8 gallons of ethanol and 18 pounds of distillers grain.

Common characteristics of co products l.jpg

Common Characteristics of Co-products

  • Energy and protein rich feeds

    highly fermentable fiber carbohydrates (NDF, ADF)

    low starch content reduces acidosis risk

  • Limitations on livestock diet formulation

    mineral profile

    fat content

  • Practical storage, handling and local availability will determine feasibility for incorporation into a feeding system.

  • Sheep producers should consider dry stored coproducts that are economically valued.

  • These coproducts are valued as energy feeds versus corn.

    DDGS – practical and cost effective

Ddgs research lactating ewes l.jpg

DDGS Research-Lactating Ewes

  • Protein- suckling lamb growth response similar for DDGS and SBM supplemented diets (Univ. of Kentucky)

  • Energy- DDGS substituted for corn at 2 lb per head, 25 % of diet DM resulted in a slight positive performance response in triplet reared lambs. (Iowa State Univ.)

  • Recommended maximum inclusion:

    • 2 lb/hd/d or 25% of dietary DM

South dakota state university ddgs research lactation diets l.jpg

South Dakota State UniversityDDGS Research-Lactation Diets

  • SDSU Lactation Trial

    • DDGS and soyhulls replacing hay to increase energy density during lactation


    • Higher milk production

    • Higher lamb gain

    • Excellent health status

Ddgs research lamb mixed diets l.jpg

DDGS Research-Lamb Mixed Diets

  • Few studies with lambs fed DDGS in US

    • SDSU conducted 1st feeding trial in 2004

    • Response to producer inquiry

  • Restrictions include meal form of product and mineral considerations – phosphorus

  • Designed simple mixed diet formulation guidelines for on-site application

    • SDSU Extension publication

Experimental Diets

Diets were formulated to be 14.5 % crude protein and isocaloric

Conclusions huls et al l.jpg

Conclusions –Huls., et. al.

  • DDGS can be used as a protein and energy source in lamb finishing diets

    • Excellent lamb growth performance and carcass merit

    • Excellent health status

  • However to be most cost effective should evaluate DDGS in a mixed ingredient diet

R. Zelinsky, J. A. Daniel, and J.E. Held

Experimental design l.jpg

Experimental Design

  • 80 white-faced and brockle-faced wethers and ewe lambs

  • Conducted December 23, 2004 at 92 days of age (range 79 to 105) and fed for 64 days after a 7-d adaptation period

  • Eight feeding pens with 10 lambs per pen

  • Feed disappearance was recorded to calculate intake and feed to gain ratio. Average daily gain was determined in 3 wk intervals.

  • Lambs were slaughtered and carcass data collected at a commercial packing plant. (Iowa Lamb Corp)

Experimental diets l.jpg

Experimental Diets

  • Diets were formulated to contain 14 % crude protein

Conclusions zelinsky et al l.jpg

Conclusions - Zelinsky,

  • DDGS was shown to be an excellent choice in mixed lamb finishing diet formulation.

    • ADG at 0.78 lb/d met or exceeded expectations for growth performance.

  • Residual feed (waste) for the soybean hull diet was approximately 40% of the corn diet.

  • Soybean hulls fed to lambs consistently have higher intake compared to grain based diets.

Ddgs considerations lamb feeding l.jpg

DDGS Considerations - Lamb Feeding

Residual feed waste in mixed ingredient diets

- Adds more labor and feed cost

- Diet sorting alters animal nutrient consumption

Diet formulation must account for high levels of:

Phosphorus - protect against urinary calculi

- maintain Ca:P at 2:1 (P < 0.4%)

- add ammonium chloride at 0.5% of dietary DM

Sulfur – total dietary levels >0.3% risk for (PEM)

- add 10 mg thiamine per lb of dietary DM

Ddgs recommendations lamb feeding l.jpg

DDGS Recommendations-Lamb Feeding

  • Up to 20% of dietary DM is practical

    • 16 % CP growing or finishing mixed diet.

  • Mixed diet with DDGS is ideal for bunk fed lambs, can use in ad lib feeding system.

  • Must have high management skills

  • DDGS and pelleted soyhulls compliment

    • Ca:P ratio and lower residual feed versus corn/DDGS

Ddgs summary lamb feeding l.jpg

DDGS Summary Lamb Feeding

  • DDGS use in lamb finishing diets promotes excellent lamb growth performance, carcass merits and health status.

  • DDGS and soyhulls can serve as the sole energy, protein and fiber sources in lamb finishing diets.
