Under a trial programme, dairy farmers across South Australia and south-east Queensland are using leftover brewer’s grain to feed their cows.
ABC Rural reports that brewer’s grain can help to increase milk output, enhanced protein composition, and improved farm productivity.

Dairy Farmers Milk Cooperative (DFMC) chair Duncan McInnes became involved in the programme 12 months ago on his property on the Scenic Rim in south-east Queensland. “Brewer’s grain has certainly helped us and really improved the quality and the digestibility of the diet. It’s all about getting the diets right for the cows and having the protein and energy in balance. It has become an integral part of our cows’ diets”.
