Terra Grain Fuels produces 160,000 tonnes of dried distillers grains (DDGs) annually. DDG is a byproduct left over after the grains have been processed which consists of the bran and fibre that are left over once the starches have been taken out of the kernel. Terra Grain Fuels then puts this byproduct through a dryer and stores it or ships it to feed lots and plants.
This is an excellent feed product and compliments silage and poor hay crops well as its high in protein with a level of approximately 34 to 35 percent.
Thirty-six percent of the grain taken in for ethanol processing is returned to the feed market annually. Terra Grain Fuels participates in research with the University of Saskatchewan to ensure the highest quality of dried distillers grains is being produced.
