Brewers Grains

Brewers’ Grains


by-products of beer production; the residue left after wort has been extracted from barley malt. Brewers’ grains consist of grain hulls and particles of grain nuclei. The grains are used fresh and dried as animal feed. There are 21.2 feed units and 4.2 kg of digestible protein in 100 kg of fresh brewers’ grains and 75.7 feed units and 16.9 kg of digestible protein per 100 kg of dried grains. Fresh brewers’ grains are often used in mixed feeds for cows, oxen, and swine; dried brewers’ grains are used in mixed feeds for cows, cattle being fattened, swine, work horses, and pond fish.
