Feed Loading Hours and Information


Dry Distillers Grains (DDG): Monday through Friday 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Wet Distillers Grains (Wet Cake): Load out available 24/7

Syrup: Load out available 24/7


**NOTE: If you are coming to the plant for the first time or have questions regarding after hours loading, please come during office hours (8:00 am - 4:00 pm).


Approximate Annual GTE Feed and Production Ratio

**80% of our feed is produced as wet distillers grains (Wet Cake)

**20% of our feed is produced as dry distillers grains (DDG)

**GTE produces corn solubles (syrup) year round


*NOTE: Typically, due to regional demand, during the winter months we produce less dry

              distillers grain than we do during the summer months.


Feed Transportation Information

The distillers wet grain is generally transported on paddle-wagon trailers that walk the product off the back of the trailer. End-dump trailers are also used and work well with wet feed and dry distillers. Hopper=bottom grain trailers cannot be used with wet distillers, but work well with our dry distillers product. Our distillers dry grain is unique compared to similar facilities due to the fact that our DDG is slightly more flowable than average.

Distiller's Dried Grains (DDG)


Feed Product Guarantees (on an "as received" basis)

Minimum Crude Protein - 26.0%

Minimum Crude Fat - 10.0%

Maximum Crude Fiber - 9.0%

Maximum Ash - 5.0%

Maximum Moisture - 10.0%


Consistency of Product: Excellent


Flowability: Good - This product is not as smooth as regular grain, but may be transported in

                      hopper trailers without major issues such as caking. DDG from our plant has the

                      standing reputation of being the best quality of DDG available on the market due

                      to the handling characteristics and consistency.


Shelf Life: Very Good - DDG can be stored for long periods of time as long as the product is

                    kept dry.


Benefits of Using DDG

**DDG has high levels of both protein and natural fat.

**DDG is very palatable and cattle go on-feed very well with it.

**It has a nice, sweet-type smell and many feed mills use it to condition their feed.

**DDG is very digestible to cattle due to being broken down and pre-digested in the

    production process. This allows the animal to not have to work as hard to further digest the

    feed.

**Using DDG provides better gains than using traditional feed rations without DDG.



Typical ration example fed by some of our existing customers:


Backgrounding: DDG fed as approximately 15% of ratio with ground corn or milo, ground hay,

                             silage and mineral package. Simply back 10% to 15% of the corn out of their

                             existing ration and substitute DDG. With good grass management programs,

                             some customers feed DDG in 6 to 8 pound piles on grass. They report little

                             waste and excellent results.


*NOTE: We recommend that customers consult with their nutritionist to ensure a properly

              balanced ration.


Distillers Wet Grain (Wet Cake)


Feed Product Guarantees (on an "as received" basis)

Minimum Crude Protein - 9.0%

Minimum Crude Fat - 3.5%

Maximum Crude Fiber - 5.0%

Maximum Ash - 2.0%

Maximum Moisture - 69%


Optimal Shelf Life (period before feed begins to perceivably deteriorate)

Summer- 10 to 14 days (weather dependent)

Winter- 14 to 30 days (weather dependent)


*NOTE: We add Altech (Cake Guard) mold inhibitor during summer months to extend shelf

              life.


Benefits of Using Wet Distillers Grain in Cattle Rations

**Nutritious feed source with excellent levels of both protein and natural fat.

**Due to the natural fat, wet distillers has 125% to 130% of the energy value of corn (on dry

    matter basis).

**Very palatable - Cattle like the taste and smell. The yeast used in the fermentation process

   gives the feed flavor and seems to stimulate the appetite. This helps increase consumption

   when mixed with less palatable feed.

**Better bunk management due to moistening of the ration. This results in less waste and

   fewer dust related issued.

**Better herd health - reduced acidosis - The feed characteristics help improve body condition

   and appearance.


Typical ration example fed by some of our existing customers:


Backgrounding: For 350 pound calves- ration consist of 60% wet distillers, 30% ground

                             alfalfa hay, and a 10% premix/balancer (no corn in this ration). Start cattle at

                             3 to 4 pounds of wet distillers per day and work up to 18 pounds for 600

                             pound cattle.


Finishing: Generally wet distillers is fed at 25% to 30% of the ration on an as-fed basis. Typical

                   ration for an 825 pound yearling steer is 55% ground corn, 28% west distillers, 14%

                   silage, and 3% premix/balancer.


*NOTE: We recommend that customers consult with their nutritionist to ensure a properly

              balanced ration.


Corn Solubles Liquid (Syrup)


Feed Product Guarantees (on an "as received" basis")

Minimum Crude Protein - 3.5%

Minimum Crude Fat - 3.2%

Maximum Crude Fiber - 2.0%

Maximum Ash - 2.5%


Flowability & Consistency: Good - This product is considered a liquid. It is shipped very hot

                                                (155 to 195 degrees Fahrenheit). The product will freeze at 32

                                                degrees Fahrenheit. If the product is allowed to sit idle several

                                                weeks, it has the tendency to separate, which could result in poor

                                                flowability.


Shelf Life: Very good- This product can be stored for long periods of time if the product is

                   recirculated occasionally to prevent settling and kept out of freezing temperatures

                   so the product remains flowable.


Benefits, Rations, and Comments from our Customers

Syrup is a valuable feed source of protein and natural fat. It is very palatable and cattle go on feed very well with it. Many customers use it to moisten, improve palatability and improve the quality of existing rations. Results of using syrup are better gains than using traditional feed rations. This occurs because of less feed waste due to improved palatability and bunk management. This is a very flexible ration to use. Some customers use it in mixed rations, liquid tanks, pour overs, as well as a way to seal and enhance silage pits.


*NOTE: We recommend that customers consult with their livestock nutritionist to ensure a

              properly balanced ration when using our feed products
