GainRite® Gluten Balancers


GainRite® Gluten Balancers are a flexible line of products to ensure performance and efficiency when feeding corn gluten feed. The nutrient density of GainRite Gluten Balancers allow for low inclusion rates without unnecessary carriers.

About the Product

Flexibility – To meet the needs of different producer situations there are several product options which allow for added flexibility while meeting the demands of feedlot cattle.

GainRite Gluten Grower 0.50 to 0.75 – A pelleted supplement to be fed as a grower at a rate of ½ to ¾ lbs/head/day.

GainRite Gluten Finisher 0.50 – A meal supplement to be fed as a finisher at a rate of ½ lb/head/day. Ideal for situations where wet gluten feed and low calcium forages are being utilized.

GainRite Gluten Finisher 0.75 – A pelleted supplement to be fed as a finisher at a rate of ¾ lb/head/day. Appropriate for diets containing some alfalfa.

GainRite Gluten Finisher 1.00 – A pelleted supplement to be fed as a finisher at a rate of 1 lb/head/day. Ideal for diets with low quality forages.

GainRite 40:30 Gluten Finisher – A pelleted supplement to be fed as a finisher at a rate of 1 to 1.25 lbs/head/day. The addition of higher protein and NPN make this supplement ideal for diets utilizing straw.

Low Inclusion – The nutrient density of Gain Rite Gluten 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 low inclusion products.

Performance – To ensure proper performance GainRite Gluten Balancers contain supplemental calcium. This is needed to offset high phosphorus levels and low calcium levels found in corn gluten 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 Gluten Balancers are available with approved feed additives.
