Corn gluten feed is a relatively high fibre, medium-energy, medium-protein product. The protein is degraded relatively rapidly in the rumen.
Its fibre is highly digestible it can be substituted for grains, to reduce the starch load in the rumen. The high fibre content may help to prevent rumen acidosis.
Corn gluten feed is much richer in cell wall constituents than maize grain and a low lignin content about 1.2% DM.
Corn gluten feed is low in calcium but has relatively high levels of phosphorus and potassium.
