Maize Distillers

Maize Distillers

High in fibre, but well digested by ruminants. A high-energy mid-protein feed which is reasonably undegradeable in the rumen. It is low in starch because of its extraction and has the highest energy value of all distillers grains, being higher in oil content than barley distillers grains.

Analysis Glossary

Limits to Usage

The total level of distillers product in the diet should be considered for ruminants as they are low in starch and already pre-fermented. In common with all distillers by-products the residual cereal oil is unsaturated. This needs to be accounted for in ruminant formulations if other ingredients containing saturated oils are present.

Storage / Processing

Usually produced as a pellet although distillers is often a meal, either because it was not pelleted or has broken down during transit.

Material to have been stored in compliance with DEFRA code of practice for the control of salmonella.


Feeding rates are estimates, and other factors, such as animal health and environment, can have a greater impact on how animals perform. There is no guarantee that animals will perform as expected if fed the suggested rates. Rations should be balanced to provide enough energy and protein for animals, and they should include enough forage to keep the rumen healthy. Animals also need access to fresh water at all times.
