GrainCorp Feeds has access to a wide range of exclusive, highly nutritional feeds as well as competitively priced commodity feeds. These feed options can be blended at rates required to meet specific herd and budget requirements.
Products available in the range include:
Soy Hulls are a byproduct of the processing of Soybeans for oil. Soy Hulls are a good source of fibre and energy and are a safe feed which can be fed ad-lib. When fed strategically, Soy Hulls have been proven to help lift production and minimise FEI levels.
Palm Kernel Expeller (PKE) is a by-product of the palm oil extraction process from the fruit of the palm, offering a low cost source of dry matter.
DDGS is a meal containing high protein and energy levels. Dried Distillers Grains with Solubles is the dried residue remaining after grain starches have been fermented in the process of producing bio ethanol in combination with yeasts and enzymes. A course dark coloured free flowing granular powder with a pleasant fermented odour.
Canola Meal is a high protein dairy feed containing approximately 36.5% crude protein. Canola Meal is a by-product from the extraction of oil for human consumption and has a strong reputation of enhancing appetites in lactating cows.
Soybean Meal is a high protein, highly palatable feed. Soybean Meal is ideally suited for feeding in late spring or summer when the protein content in pasture generally decreases.
As the name suggests the Oat Hull Pellet is produced from oat hulls. The processing of oats for human consumption produces by-products such as oat hulls, broken groats and oat bran. Oat Hulls are the outside husk and groats are the internal germ of the oat which is one of the highest energy sources available. Oat Hull Pellets are lower in protein and energy and are ideal to help reduce cost and cost effectively increase dry matter intake.
Kibbled Maize is a locally grown, energy dense, high starch feed. Kibbled Maize is more digestible than whole grains and has a more stable release within the rumen than some other grain types.
The GCF Starch Pellet is a robust, high quality pellet which combines a range of starches for optimal rumen degradation. High in starch and energy, with moderate protein levels, the GCF Starch Pellet is the ideal feed to help optimise milk production during any stage of lactation. Inclusion rates should be determined by overall intake, pasture quality and stage of lactation, to help optimise pasture utilisation and productivity from feeding this high quality pellet.
Feed Grade Oat is made from oats and offers high energy and starch levels in a concentrated, pelleted form, combined with good levels of protein, ensuring the FGO Pellet is suitable for a range of applications throughout the year, either in blends or on its own (non GM).
Tapioca Pellet is a rapidly digestible starch source containing little protein and medium levels of energy. Due to its rapid rate of digestibility, tapioca must be fed in controlled feeding environments at relatively low percentages and as such is ideally suited for inclusion in blended feeds.
