Oatmill by-product is a mixture of coarsely ground oat midds, hulls, and thin oats from human consumption oat plants. It is mainly used as an oat substitute due to its nutritional characteristics and price competitiveness with whole oats.
FEEDING & USAGE:
Oatmill by-product can be included in dairy, beef, and hog rations at the same level as whole oats. It works extremely well in dry cow and heifer rations due to its bulkiness and energy level. It is often economically adventageous to market whole oats as cash grain and replace it with oatmill by-product for feeding. However, it is not recommended for use in calf starter rations.
STORAGE & HANDLING:
Oatmill by-product is available in meal or pellet form, bulk or 50 lb bags. Bulk material is delivered in hopper, dump or live bottom trailers in 23 – 25 ton loads. It can be handled with any normal moving equipment used in the feed or grain industry. Bagged loads are 22 – 23 tons and are delivered in van trailers.
