The 3 R's of Nutrient Byproducts

The 3 R's of Nutrient Byproducts

Lately, it is crucial to pay attention to sustainability. One way to reduce carbon footprint is to explore the use of nutrient byproducts in your ration.

A nutrient byproduct is the leftover commodity after the initial product has been produced. Here are the 3 R's of nutrient byproducts:


  • When feed is produced, farmer often throw away what is left.

  • Instead, utilizing the nutrient byproducts will enable the farmers to reduce waste sent to landfill.

  • Some of these feed ingredients can also be sold or given away to other farmers, reducing your feed cost.


  • If possible, try to find ways to reuse the leftover products.

  • By reusing leftover products, less excess material will end up in landfill.

  • Blending nutrient byproducts into feed ration will give food scraps new value.


  • Recycle means breaking down used item into raw material to be used for new items.

  • Adding nutrient byproduct to TMR could potentially improve the taste and thus improve dry matter intake.

  • This will definitely improve the profitability of the farm.
