Hominy feed is a by-product from the manufacture of pearl hominy, hominy grits or table meal from corn. It is similar in appearance to ground corn, has slightly more energy and protein, and has similar feeding characteristics.
Hominy should be analyzed for its fat content, which can vary considerably due to the type of manufacturing process. As fat content drops, so does TDN. For example, hominy containing 1.5 percent fat will have 82 percent TDN.
Hominy is a palatable feedstuff. It is safe to feed in large quantities and can be included in the grain mixture at high levels.
