The US Grains Council (USGC) aims to expand demand of US feed grains and their co-products in Egypt by working hands-on in the country's vibrant livestock and poultry industries and the growing aquaculture sector.

Dr Darwin Britzman, USGC consultant, travelled to Egypt on 22-26 October to provide training to feed mill operators and end-users regarding the feeding of co-products and coarse grains, and modern handling methods.

In the poultry industry, the common practice in Egypt is to start the birds on low levels of DDGS, 5 percent, and to increase it to 7.5-10 percent as they get older.

"By continuing education efforts, Egyptian poultry producers will likely begin using high levels of DDGS at the very beginning, one day of age," he said.
