|A principal co-product of the ethanol production process are distillers grains which is the product remaining after the ethanol is removed from the fermented corn mash. Distillers grains are the non-fermentable components of the corn and are rich in cereal proteins, fat (energy), making it a high-protein, high-energy animal feed supplement marketed to the dairy, beef, swine and poultry industries.|
Pinal Energy offers three varieties of feed. "Wet Distillers Grains and Solubles (WDGS)," and "Dried Distillers Grains and Solubles (DDGS)."
WDGS is sold at approximately 35% solids, is high in energy content and is highly palatable for the animal. WDGS has an approximate 10 day shelf life. DDGS is made by drying WDGS through a dryer to remove most of the moisture. DDGS is a free-flowing granular product with a uniform moisture of 10-12% and has a long storage life.
