Whole Corn Kernal Value Extraction
Greenfield utilizes and extracts value from the whole corn kernel. In fermenting corn sugars into energy or specialty chemicals, roughly one third of the weight produces alcohol, a third produces distillers grain and corn oil, and a third produces CO2.
In addition to producing alcohol and ethanol, the C02 is sold to companies that make carbonated beverages and concrete, and the corn oil and distillers grains are sold to farms and feed mills for animal nutrition.
Distillers Corn Oil (DCO)
Valued for its high energy content, distillers corn oil is commonly used as a feedstock for biodiesel production or as an valued ingredient in poultry and other livestock feed diets. Corn oil from the production of ethanol is also used in common industrial products including rust inhibitors, soaps, rubber, and inks.
Dried Corn Distillers Grains with Solubles (DDGS)
Corn distillers grains with solubles dehydrated (DDGS) is a high protein, high energy dry feed product with a uniform blend of minerals and vitamins. Adding DDGS to animal diets provides excellent performance, health, and end product quality. It’s no wonder that DDGS is one of the most popular feed ingredients being used in livestock production around the world.
Modified Corn Distillers Grains with Solubles (MWDGS)
Corn wet distillers grain with solubles (MWDGS) is a lightly dried product consisting of 48%+ dry matter. Our lower heat processing dehydrates excess moisture while allowing the product to maintain the excellent palatability and high digestibility that livestock producers value in moist feeds. This product with improved shelf life makes it a great choice for any livestock ration.
Wet Corn Distillers Grains (WDG)
Wet Corn Distillers’ Grains (WDG) is a favourite among beef and dairy producers with operations nearby our bulk plants. This product is well known for its highly palatable attribute that helps drive feed intake and conversion of the total ration. WDG is a highly digestible and economical source of protein and energy.
Condensed Distillers Solubles (CDS)
Condensed solubles (CDS) is a liquid source of digestible protein, energy, and important minerals such as phosphorus and potassium. CDS is a valuable tool used in feed blending strategies alongside lower quality forages to improve palatability. CDS is also highly popular in swine rations as the backbone ingredient in many liquid feeding programs.
