Either you mean silage or is this possibly a word for the grain that would be left over after processing into ethanol? I was at a producers meeting last night and the speaker was saying that these leftovers after processing would have all the nutrients needed for keeping cows over winter. Don't remember whether it was recommended for calves or first calvers though.

I was thinking the same thing. If it's from the ethonal/booze manufacturing process they're usually restirred to as DG-Distillers Grain, or DDG-Dried Distillers Grain. I'm fairly sure that the link to the feed compostion chardt has distillers grains on it.

Right now wet glutten feed is $26.60 per ton dropped at the farm. Wet distillers is $35, and dry is $75. We fed a little ground hay, ground corn stover and 1 1/2 lbs. of glutten to the old cows that were on stalks last year. We fed glutten to the calves last year. I think my ration now calls for 6# of wet distillers per hd. for the weaned calves. Very high in protien, but I think it's low in calcium.
