During the past year there has been renewed interest in the feeding value of by-products of alcohol production. Previous research has dealt primarily with feeding of distillers dried grains or distillers dried grains with solubles (DDG/S) . Research conducted at South Dakota State University had shown that growing-finishing pigs could be fed diet s containing as much as 20% DDG/S without significantly affecting rate of gain. However , feed conversion was significantly poorer with this level of DDG/S in the diet . Protein and dry matter digestibility were also reduced when diets contained 20% of DDG/S.
The experiment reported herein was conducted to evaluate different levels of DDG/S in pig starter diets that were equalized in lysine content .
