Achieved results



The achieved results indicate that DDGS is highly advantageous, should the mixture be well-balanced. Within the feeding period covering the whole weaner stage, the animals have achieved high level of body mass increase in case of the groups using the DDGS, even exceeding the values from the control group, in case of which DDGS was not used, as solely the post-extraction soy cake, the cost of which was higher, was applied.

DDGS constitutes a valuable protein component of the feeding mixtures for the weaners, and its contribution may range from 8 to 12%.

By introducing DDGS into the diet, we may decrease contribution of other protein feeds, and lower the cost of breeding.
