Nothing but cheap filler. A cow will starve to death with a belly full of the things. Most less expensive pelleted cattle feeds (cubes especially) will contain quite a few if the crude fiber is very high. Some people are using them mixed with shavings for bedding for horses and show cattle.

How are you considering using them?

They will be mixed in a mix wagon with DDGs and at times some soy pellets and corn gluten pellets and fed to 5 to 6 weight cattle. Was thinking about using around 10% of these.

I wouldn't figure any value for them in balancing my ration other than high undigestible fiber but you can use them as a "stretcher" or "filler". DDG, soyhulls pellets and CGF are good ingredients. Adding rice hulls just dilutes the value of all of it.

It does indeed.
