Distillers grains (DG) originating from the corn-based fuel ethanol industry are an excellent source of energy and non-rumen degradable protein, and are an effective ingredient for dairy cattle diets. However, in spite of competitive price when compared to other protein sources and their high availability in the market, DG are not always sought as a dietary ingredient by some nutritionists and dairy producers. In a recent survey conducted in South Dakota by South Dakota State University Dairy Extension, where 28% of all Grade A dairy producers replied (Unpublished. 2011), many confirmed they did not use DG in their dairy cattle diets.
