We have but scratched the surface of feed and other application of DDGS.
Our application for DDGS is insects.
Our experience with mealworms: it makes excellent substrate bedding feed, is easy to sift out pupae, chaff and separate beetles. Plus, it's slow to mold even with slightly wet water vegetation or fruit. Once shifted clean may be used a second time. We have yet to experiment with crickets however, we believe it would be a great low-cost feed for them.
