Brewers Grains

BREWERS GRAINS is a co-product from the production of beer. The intake of malt is allowed to soak in warm water to remove the sugars as ‘wort’ with the fibrous and protein residue being separated off as ‘Brewers Grains’. Brewers grains can be fed to all livestock in a wide range of feeding situations. Whether used as part of a total mixed ration (TMR), as a sole concentrate feed or even as a forage replacer, care should be taken to ensure sufficient long fibre is fed.
