Wheat bran is a by-product during flour production from wheat and contains the protective outer part of wheat grain. Wheat bran is rich in protein and vitamins. Wheat bran protein, energy and highly digestible cell wall fractions (NDF) are well evaluated by ruminants, so they are used in rations instead of some of the other grains or protein sources. It is widely used in wheat bran, dairy cattle and beef cattle rations and also improves pellet quality. In addition, wheat bran poultry rations are used as a source of energy, protein and minerals.
Rice Bran includes the outer part of the rice grain and the parts remaining after polishing during rice production. Compared with the wheat bran wheat feed, the protein content of rice bran is very low. Corn bran is widely used in dairy cattle and beef cattle rations.
Corn bran is a flour industrial by-product containing corn outer skin and non-extractable flour particles. It is obtained as coarse and fine dandruff depending on the degree of pulverization. The feed value of corn bran varies depending on the content of the shell and flour particles. Corn bran, as a by-product, is a valuable feed raw material and is used in feeding dairy cattle, beef cattle, ovine and poultry.
