EORNAGOLD is produced from pressed residual (spent) grains, evaporated syrup and a centrifuged cake residue from the whiskey distillation process. Initially, water is added to milled corn or barley and malt, and processed in the brew house to extract sugars for fermentation by yeast.

Eornagold can be fed to most livestock in a wide range of feeding situations. Whether used as part of a total mixed ration (TMR), as a sole concentrate feed or part of a simple mix, care should be taken to ensure a good long fibre source is present and that adequate mineral and vitamin supplementation is added.


Feeding Rates

Dairy Cows Up to 10 kg/hd/day fresh weight

Beef Cattle Up to 10 kg per head per day fresh weight (mixtures of 50:50 Eornagold: Cereals give good results)
