Wheat Pollard

Wheat pollard is a byproduct during wheat milling.It is produced by sieving the wheat bran from flour when milling.

Wheat Bran

Bran,also known as miller's bran,is the hard outer layer of cereal grain.It consists of the combined aleurone and pericarp.

Maize Bran

This is a byproduct during the maize milling process. It is a very nutritious material since it acts as a fast class source of crude fibre and energy. It also aids in attaining the right feed texture and the right color. In most cases, aesthetically, it is popularly used for feeds that are intended to have a rough lookout! Since it is derived from the maize cereals, it is locally and readily available at all times.

Maize Germ

This is a byproduct during the maize milling process. It is a very nutritious material since it acts as a first class source of crude fiber and energy. It also aids in attaining the right feed texture and the right color. In most cases, aesthetically, it is popularly used for feeds that are intended to have a fine lookout! Since it is derived from the maize cereals, it is locally and readily available at all times.

D.O.C sunflower Meal

This product is a byproduct of de-oiling the sunflower seeds. Through solvent extraction, we obtain D.O.C Sunflower Cake. It is a highly nutritious product in the feed formulation since it has a very high level of protein. Though it is known to have a slightly higher fibre that Sunflower cake, its protein percentage is always higher. DOC Sunflower cake is always produced under controlled conditions and are fully treated for the best results! A good source of proteins - Sunflower meal is one of the major protein sources in livestock feed, especially dairy cattle, chickens and even pigs and rabbits. It has a high protein, fiber and oil content. It has a protein content of between 29- 30% and a crude fiber content of 27-31% and lignin (9-12%) and lysine (3.5%). One good characteristic of sunflower is that it does not have any ingredients that affect nutrition in livestock, although its high fiber and lignin (the hard, woody part of the sunflower plant) tend to affect its digestibility Besides, sunflower is a good source of calcium, phosphorus and B vitamins. Apart from dairy cows, sunflower can be fed to rabbits, pigs and chickens. The quality of sunflower fed to livestock depends on the way it has been processed. For example sunflower that is milled without removing the outer cover (also called husk or hull) has high fiber (between 27-31%) but low protein content (about 23%); but in highly processed sunflower where the husks are completely extracted, protein content can be as high as 40%. Sunflower can replace other feed sources. Dairy cows produce more milk when fed on sunflower meal that is partially or fully dehulled. For rabbits, pigs and poultry, a sunflower meal that is high on fibre and lignin would be suitable since they require feed with less energy.

Full Fat soya

Many soyabeans grown today are fed to livestock as full-fat beans. This is a change from the traditional practice of extracting the oil for human consumption and feeding the remaining meal to livestock.

Soya Meal

Soyabean meal also known as soya bean oil cake is a solid residue by-product created after grinding the soyabean to extract soyabean oil.It is widely used as a filler and source of protein in animal diets, including pig, chicken, cattle, horse, sheep, and fish feed. Soya bean meal is ideally made from high-quality, clean, and dehulled yellow beans.

Cotton Cake

With the advancement of technology, the processing of food has become considerably convenient. As a result, cottonseed has been able to flourish in new markets such as feed products for livestock. Cotton seed is crushed in the mill after removing lint from the cotton plant. The seed is further crushed to remove any remaining linters or strands of minute cotton fibres. The seeds are further hulled and polished to release the soft and high-protein cake. These cakes of the cottonseed are then mixed with other types of grains in order to make it suitable for the livestock feed. Cottonseed Meal and Cottonseed Cakes are the most abundantly available natural sources of protein and fiber used to feed livestock

Molasses

Molasses is a byproduct of sugar. it is the only source of sugar that is required in the animal In feed formulation. Molasses is used in the process of animal feed production as one of the ingredients. All types of animal feeds require some amount of sugar(molasses) for the proper balances to be maintained. In other instances molasses is directly applied on fodder to make it sweet for the animals. Most farmers increase the appetite of their animals by making them addicted to molasses. The sugary taste mixed with water and fodder increases the appetite for animals Molasses however has not been commonly used in several farming areas in Kenya, due to non-availability. In Kenya, sugar is predominantly grown in western part of the country with a few companies dominating the trade. This is due to the huge capital outlay that is required to start a sugar processing company under limitations from special climatic conditions that favour the growth of sugarcane. The founders of By Grace farm feed ltd discovered about ten years ago that most of the rift valley and the Mt. Kenya region which are the agricultural backbone of Kenya do not have easy access to molasses this was particularly due to the distance and cost involved to transport the product from the western part of Kenya to the user. By grace farm feeds, developed the determination to deliver the molasses to Nairobi and Nakuru, a distance of more than 600 km from the source Although initially the transportation and packaging was a big issue gradually the company overcame the challenges. Today the company delivers more than 100 tons of molasses to animal feed manufacturers and established farms. The company has also captured a wide market of the individual users who are supplied through several agro vet outlets. Why By Grace is the preferred supplier of molasses By grace farm feeds is the leading supplier of molasses in the country, majoring in Nairobi and its immediate environs servicing several manufacturers of animal feeds. The company has been able to attain that position mainly due to the following factors: Quality products Molasses, being a product of sugar has other several uses including the production of alcoholic drinks under commercially licensed and illegal brewing mainly within the rural areas. The dealers in molasses destined from other uses increase the volume of molasses through adulteration by either adding water or other substances that react with the sugar to increase its volume. Some chemicals are also added to the molasses to speed up its fermentation process. While this is being applied in the brewing industry Some distributors of' Molasses for the use of animals also seize the opportunity and adulterate the Molasses by adding water. The Molasses is then sold to unsuspecting users who use the same for the manufacturer of animal feeds. Some farmers mix it with fodder and feed the animals directly. This has resulted to disastrous reactions from the animals and even the animal feeds do not meet required quality. By Grace farm feeds has maintained tile quality of Molasses all through and have attested to that. The company ethics and practices are above reproach. That is why several animal feeds manufactures prefer sourcing the Molasses through By Grace farm feeds thus propelling the company to greater heights of volumes
