Malt Residual Pellets

A well balanced medium energy and protein feed, providing a lot of digestible fibre and good pellet quality. Malt residual pellets are a co-product from the malting industry.


After screening, larger grains of malting barley are encouraged to sprout in order to convert the starch in the grain into sugars. The process is stopped and the sprouts or rootlets (malt culms) removed and dried. Malt residual pellets are formed from a pelleted combination of the malt culms and barley screenings.


Average energy, can be used as a lower cost filler which has a reasonable source of protein.
