Increased production of ethanol for the automotive industry has led great amounts of distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) to be available to poultry and other livestock industries. The U.S. government recently decided to eliminate ethanol blending credit that was provided to ethanol producers in the past. Due to the purpose of creating additional stream of revenue, many ethanol plants considered extraction of corn oil from DDGS being produced. The extracted oil can be used in biodiesel production or sold as a commodity to different industries. DDGS, whose oil is extracted, is commonly called as low-oil DDGS. There are currently very limited research conducted regarding the nutrient composition and applications of low-oil DDGS in poultry industry. In these studies, we determined the nutritional properties, economic value analysis and feeding recommendations in poultry rations for low-oil DDGS.
