GainRite® Distiller Balancers are a flexible line of products to ensure performance and efficiency when feeding corn distiller grains. The nutrient dense GainRite Distiller Balancers allow for low inclusion rates without unnecessary carriers.
Flexibility – To meet the needs of different producer situations there are several product options which allow for added flexibility and meet the demands of feedlot cattle.
GainRite Distiller Grower 0.50 to 0.75 – A pelleted supplement to be fed as a grower at a rate of ½ to ¾ pounds per head per day.
GainRite Distiller Finisher 0.50 – A meal supplement to be fed as a finisher at a rate of ½ pound per head per day. Ideal for situations where wet distillers and low calcium forages are being utilized.
GainRite Distiller Finisher 0.75 – A pelleted supplement to be fed as a finisher at a rate of ¾ pound per head per day.
GainRite Distiller Finisher 1.00 – A pelleted supplement to be fed as a finisher at a rate of 1.00 pound per head per day. The higher inclusion rate allows for additional mixing accuracy.
Low Inclusion – The nutrient density of GainRite Distiller Balancers allow for low inclusion rates without unnecessary carriers. Producers will often benefit due to a cost per head per day savings on low inclusion supplements versus higher inclusion supplements; even though the cost per ton may be higher with a low inclusion products.
Performance – To ensure proper performance GainRite Distiller Balancers contain supplemental calcium. This is needed to offset high phosphorus levels and low calcium levels found in corn coproduct feeds. The supplement calcium can also help to reduce instances of urinary calculi (water belly). Supplemental trace minerals are also included to promote growth rate and feed intake. Vitamin E, which has been associated with increased livestock performance, is also included at an enhanced level.
Supplemental Thiamine – Consumption of high levels of corn co-products has been linked to polio. The accepted treatment for polio is intravenous infusion of thiamine. Although no guarantee is implied, daily feeding of supplemental thiamine is thought to be indicated.
Choice of Additives – Proper use of additives can improve animal performance; refer to the product tag for a specific claim. GainRite Distiller Balancers are available with approved feed additives.
