Summary and Implications

Changes to the production method of distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS), a common feedstuff in poultry diets, can alter the nutrient profile and energy content. Estimates of DDGS digestibility vary as a result of the altered production method, removal of value-added products like distiller’s corn oil, as well as the strain of chicken used (broiler vs. layer). The objective of this study was to determine the energy digestibility of high protein DDGS (HiP DDGS) fed to straight-run Cobb 500 broiler chickens. The apparent nitrogen-corrected metabolizable energy of HiP DDGS was calculated at 2,710 kcal/kg. Additional research is needed to further illustrate the influence of production method on HiP DDGS feeding value in broiler chickens.
