Feed Value of By-products of Alcohol Production for Swine
The production of alcohol as a fuel energy source has created an interest in "on-the-farm" alcohol plants. Although many different materials can be used in the production of alcohol, most interest has centered on the use of corn as the carbohydrate source. In this process, the starch in corn is converted to sugar and the sugar to alcohol which is then distilled off leaving a liquid product of approximately 5 to 10% dry matter. This product is called "stillage" and it contains considerable amounts of nutrients.
