 Properties of grains contd. o Corn  Low protein (8-10% DM)  Low Lysine and Tryptophan  High Leucine  Low Ca (0.03%)  Moderate P (0.30%) (Ca:P ratio  2:1)  50% of P bound to Phytate (70-80% in corn)  Vitamins:  High in beta-carotene, thiamin, niacin (unavailable to monogastrics)  Low in other B vitamins  Use of corn – livestock diets o Swine and Poultry  Supplemental nutrients needed – AAs, available P, Ca, Salt, Trace minerals, Fat soluble vitamins, B vitamins o Ruminants and Horses  Limited by fiber requirements  Fiber requirement met by forages  Supplemental nutrients needed – Crude Protein (CP), P, Ca, Salt, Trace Minerals, Fat soluble vitamins  Variations – corn composition o Genetic variants  High lysine (opaque-2)  Reduced amount of protein needed in Monogastric diets  Limitations: lower yields; soft kernels (subject to ear rot)  Waxy corn  100% amylopectin  Improved starch digestibility  Variable improvements in animal performance  High Amylose Corn  >50% Amylose; high fructose corn syrup  High Oil Corn  7-8% oil; may improve feed efficiency and rate of gain  Low Phytate Corn  Increased digestibility of P in corn; reduced amount of supplemental P needed; reduced P excretion  Ground Ear Corn  Also known as Corn or Cob Meal  Contains 20% cob; 70 lbs/bushel; 87% TDN, DM basis; 28% NDF  Uses: not used in swine or poultry o Can be used for ruminants or horses  If used, reduce amount of forage in diet o Harmful constituents – corn grain  Aflatoxin – carcinogenic toxins produced by Aspergillus molds on corn  Problem in drought stricken corn  Sorghum (Milo) – drought resistant o Energy value: 85-98% value corn; require processing o 8-12% CP – most limiting AA: Lysine o Low Ca o Moderate P – 50% P bound to Phytate o Uses in diets: could replace corn in diets if processed (ruminant and monogastrics)  Oats – palatable (DON’T NEED TO KNOW NUMBERS) o Lower TDN than corn due to a high NDF o Hulls poorly digested o Limiting AA – Lysine o Ca and P – same as other energy feeds (low Ca, moderate P) o Usage:  Poultry, swine, finishing beef cattle: 20-40% corn  Horses: 100% corn  Barley o Energy: 83% (90% value of corn) – Ruminants  Swine: 80% value of corn o Low NDF, poorly digested o Limiting AA – Lysine; higher CP than corn o Rolled but not finely ground o Uses:  Finishing cattle and swine – 100% corn  Prevent bloat in feedlot cattle in rumen – rapidly fermented  Lactating sows – 85% corn  Dairy cows – 50% corn  Wheat – Energy (high TDN) o Starch properties – rapidly digested (lactic acidosis and bloat in cattle)  Processing considerations – doughy in mouth if finely ground  Low palatability o Has Xylans (carb structure), low fiber, sticky  Supplement with xylanase (additive) if fed to poultry  Rye – starch properties resemble wheat o Unpalatable o Could contain ergot – fungus producing toxic alkaloids  Alkaloids cause vasoconstriction  Abortions in cattle; gangrene – loss of hooves, tails, ears  Triticale – hybrid of wheat and rye o Unpalatable; susceptible to ergot o Use in rations – similar to rye (limited) o More common seen as forage (hay/grazing); same with wheat (straw)  Grain Summary: o High energy (TDN) o 50% of P is bound to phytate o Limiting AA – Lysine o Oats: high fiber content o Wheat: Xylans, gummy mouth o Rye: unpalatable; Ergot o Triticale: wheat and rye  Fats and Oils – energy dense o Types: animal fats, vegetable fats, blends, salts of FAs  Animal fats:  Types: choice white grease, beef tallow, poultry fat (pet industry), fish oil  Characteristic: highly saturated  Vegetable oils/fats:  Types: corn oil, soybean oil, canola oil, cottonseed oil, linseed (flaxseed oil)  Forms: free oils, whole oil seeds  Characteristics: more unsaturated FAs  Animal/vegetable blends: inexpensive  Choice white grease; animal/vegetable blend; restaurant grease  Ca salts of long-chain FAs – not cheap  Sold as Megalac  Bypass ruminal fat digestion and digested in SI  Mostly used in diets of lactating dairy cows o Saturated vs unsaturated fats  Saturated: more H atoms, no double bonds, solid at room temp  Unsaturated: less H atoms, at least 1 double bond, liquid at room temp o Advantages  High energy concentration of diet without high heat increment (2.25x more energy)  Supplies essential FAs (linoleic – Omega 3 and linolenic – Omega 6)  Higher absorption of fat soluble vitamins  Lower dustiness of diet  Improves palatability  Lubricates equipment o Limitations  Cost; feed storage characteristics - fats oxidize and go rancid; species very in amts to use o Ruminant rations  Excessive amounts of fats alter rumen fermentation in ruminants  Effects – reduce fiber digestion, feed intake, and milk fat percentage in dairy cows  Relation to type of fat – unsaturated fats are toxic to rumen bacteria o Worst (free oils) – Tallow – Whole oil seeds – Less (Ca salts of FA) o Limitations fats fed to livestock  Milk replacers for pigs, calves, or lambs – 20% of DM  Nonruminants  Dogs and cats – up to 40% DM  Swine and poultry – 10% of DM  Ruminants  With normal ingredients – 5% of diet DM  If fat source is ruminal protected – 7% of diet DM o Unique considerations  Monogastrics take on characteristics of fat source  Fat of Monogastric fed vegetable oils contain higher concentration of unsaturated FAs o Pork – soft, oily fat  Difficult to process, short shelf life, discounted price o Poultry – all vegetable based diets  Fat in yolk (Omega 3) (Flaxseed)  Byproduct energy supplements o Molasses – high energy, low protein (mostly NPN; low CP), high palatability, high laxative (high mineral K)  Use in livestock  High energy concentration  Palatant o Mechanism – sweetness and reduces dustiness o Use – starter diets for young livestock  Pellet bindle  Laxative for lactating cattle  Liquid supplements (tubs)  Problems with excessive amounts  Difficult handling feed  Rapid fermentation in rumen – low ruminal pH and lactic acidosis (bloat)  Scours – young cattle  Max amounts in diet  Monogastric (horses) – 10% DM  Ruminants – 5% DM o Beet Pulp – high TDN, low CP, low CF  High energy forage; provide fiber  Max amounts in diet  Horses and beef cows – 50% of forage  Finishing cattle – 15% of diet  Lactating sows – 20% of diet  Growing finishing pigs or poultry – don’t use – fiber too limited o Food wastes  Concerns  Variable composition, high fat, starch/sugar rapidly fermented in rumen, high salt concentration  Max amounts in diet  Growing finishing pigs – 50% of corn  Young pigs (60 lb) or growing finishing cattle – 20% of diet  Energy Feeds Summary: o 3 classes – grains, fats/oils, bakery by-products o Grains – 50% P bound to phytate o Low in lysine and Ca o Has several anti-nutritional factors o Contribute some protein/AAs Feed Grain Byproducts Reasons in rations – energy, fiber, protein Residual materials from grains after extraction of starch and/or oil Remaining components – protein, fiber, oil, minerals Protein quality of by-product feeds is NOT better than initial grain Wet milling vs dry milling o Wet milling  Animal feeds: Steep water – water off of process o Beef cattle  Feedlot – 12% diet DM  Growing – liquid supplement and protein tubs, high TDN o Dairy cattle – 5% diet o Swine – 15% diet DM liquid diets o Poultry – 5% diet DM o Fish feed – 100% diet Corn gluten meal (fiber and S – limit use) o Beef cattle – depends on forage in diet o Dairy cows – lactating cows o Swine – in gestation as much as 90% o Poultry – layers receive as much as 30% o NOT used in companion animals Corn gluten feed (CGF) o Concerns  Storage (spoilage – moisture)  High S content – limit amounts fed to ruminants  High fiber content – limit amounts fed to growing swine, poultry, companion animals and lactating dairy cows o Bright yellow in color o Beef cattle  Feedlot – 50% protein supply, by pass protein  Cows – not cost effective, no need for rumen undegradable protein (RUP) o Dairy cattle – lactating (50% supply), lysine limited) o Swine – 5% of diet, lysine limited o Poultry and companion animals – 5% of diet, contains xanthophyll  Humans: Starch, sugar, syrup, corn oil o Dry milling  Humans – corn meal, hominy, corn grits, ethanol  Fat concentrated and protein  DDG – dry distillers grain Beef cattle – best used: low starch, high fiber, some fat and protein o Limit to 40% diet DM – feedlot o Grazing cows, growing cattle, and calves – can use entire forage diet Dairy cattle – lactating (20%), growing heifers (limit to 15%) Swine – growing/finishing (20%), sows (50%) Poultry – limit to 15% diet DM Concerns o S content  0.4% S in ruminant diets
