From feed pellets to fish food, from rapeseed meal to feed grade molasses, LDC produces a wide variety of products for the animal feed and pet food sectors
Our Animal Feed & Pet Food Products:
Proper nutrition is key to productive fish farming. From corn, wheat, soy and rice bran, we produce high-quality aquatic feed that contributes to healthier stock and profitability for customers in aquaculture.
Canola meal is what remains after most of the oil is extracted from canola seeds. The resultant meal is molded into pellets for easier handling and flowability, and sold as an animal feed ingredient for added fat, fiber and protein nutrients.
Citrus Pulp Pellets
After the juice and oils have been extracted from citrus fruits, the remaining pulp is transformed into citrus pulp pellets, which are then sold as an energy-giving, fiber-rich animal feed ingredient.
Cottonseed meal is a by-product of cotton ginning, obtained by crushing the seeds and extracting their oil. The high protein and energy value of the remaining meal makes it an excellent ingredient for animal feed, mostly used by cattle producers.
Distillers solubles is a liquid by-product of the production process that extracts ethanol from corn. It is condensed into a syrup which may then be applied to dried spent grains to produce DDGS, or sold directly as a nutritious animal feed ingredient.
Dried Distillers Grains with Solubles (DDGS)
DDGS is obtained by removing ethyl alcohol by distillation from the yeast fermentation of corn, and by separating and drying the resultant coarse grain fraction of the whole stillage. DDGS is used to add nutrition and palatability to animal feed and pet food.
Barley grain has three major uses: livestock feed, raw material for alcohol and starch production, and food. LDC deals exclusively in rolled feed barley, sourced from Russia, Ukraine and Argentina for delivery to Australia, China, Thailand and the Middle East. In this last location, it is used as a popular feed for camels.
Feed grain is any grain used for livestock feed. LDC feed grains production is mostly yellow corn, which is fed whole, rolled, cracked, flaked or further processed into DDGS or cornmeal. Primarily fed to hogs, poultry, cattle and pets, corn is not a high protein feed ingredient and usually represents only a certain percentage of a feed ration.
LDC produces glycerin as a by-product of soy and rapeseed processing. Glycerin has many applications, including as a moisture retainer in pet food and as an additive in animal feed to replace corn grain.
We also produce lecithin as a by-product of soy and rapeseed processing. Feed-grade lecithin is used to enrich animal feed in fat and protein content, and to facilitate the process of molding feed into pellets.
A viscous, dark and sugar-rich by-product of sugar extraction from sugarcane, molasses is a major feed ingredient, used as an energy source and binder in compound feeds.
Palm Kernel Expellers (PKE)
PKE is a by-product of the oil extraction process from the palm fruit, and is used as a safe, quality stock feed containing high levels of crude protein and medium energy levels. It is used as a feed supplement for most classes of livestock, ideally in conjunction with high energy feeds such as molasses.
Peanut meal is a by-product of peanut seed crushing and oil extraction. Due to its high protein value and palatability, it is an excellent feed ingredient, mainly used in cattle production.
Rapeseed meal is made by processing the resulting rapeseed cake after oil is extracted from the seeds as a feedstock for biodiesel production. Each ton of rapeseed biodiesel that we produce generates approximately 1.25 tons of rapeseed meal, a key component in high-protein animal feed.
Soybean hulls are the outer coverings of soybeans, which are removed prior to conditioning and flaking for oil extraction. They are an excellent option for use in feed supplements in diets with a high fiber content, mainly for ruminants.
Soybean meal is obtained by grinding the flakes that remain after most of the oil has been extracted from dehulled soybeans. It is used in animal feed and pet food products worldwide, as a high-protein ingredient for added nutrition.
