|CORN GLUTEN FEED|
|CORN GLUTEN FEED is that part of the commercial shelled corn that remains after the extraction of the larger portion of the starch, gluten, and germ by the processes employed in the wet-milling manufacture of corn starch or syrup. It may or may not contain one or more of the following : fermented corn extractives, corn germ meal.|
CORN GLUTEN FEED is widely used in feed for catile and other ruminants. By virtue of their complex digestive system, cattle can thrive on feeds relatively high in fiber content, and are less demanding of the quality of protein feed. At 16-20% protein and 7-10% fiber, corn gluten feed may be incorporated at levels up to 50% of the ration for dairy and beef cattle.
CORN GLUTEN FEED may be used at a level up to 10% of complete rations for swine. It has been Found that when the amino acid content of the diet is balanced (through the use of protein ingredients complementary to the corn protein), growing and finishing swine can well utilize up to 30% of corn gluten feed in the diet. The limiting factor in these diets appears to be the quantity or the availability of the amino-acid, tryptophan, rather than the fiber content.
Most of the commonly used cereal grains and their by-products are relatively deficient in the essential amino-acids lysine and methionine. Some of these are only fair sources of tryptophan. Corn Gluten Feed can replace with appropriate formula adjustments, these other cereal products with equal or better results in production or growth. CORN GLUTEN FEED has been used advantageously within the range of 5-10% of the formula for chicken and turkey growing mashes, poultry laying or breeder mashes, and complete brood-sow rations.
