Some livestock raisers, particularly cattle and goat raisers, feed their animals with spent grains from the beer factory. The animals love the feed because it is very palatable. But the advice of the expert we met in Thailand is that you should not feed too much brewers’s spent grains.
Why? He said that it will lead to acidosis in the stomach. The stomach will become too acidic so that the beneficial microflora will be killed. That means, digestion of the feed intake will be hampered. Much of the nutrients will not be digested and not used by the animal.
